Klopp calls Mo Salah the best in the world after ‘special’ Watford performance

Jurgen Klopp has described Mohamed Salah as the best player in the world following his stunning performance during Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford. 

Salah had already amassed six goals and three assists this season in the Premier League going into the match at Vicarage Road and quickly added to that tally when an exquisite outside of the foot pass found Sadio Mane, before the Senegal international’s calm finish put the visitors ahead in the ninth minute. 

The 29-year-old then went one better early in the second half when he found space in the Watford box, before he chopped inside and unleashed a curling shot past the motionless Ben Foster in goal. 

‘His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special.’

The German boss continued to hail Salah during his post match press conference, saying: ‘He is a top-class professional who likes training. Physically and tactically, he’s a top professional. The little problem is we don’t have much time for training as it’s mainly about recovering.

‘He’s been at this level for a while. He’s at an age where you can improve. An outstanding pass for Sadio. The boys improve all the time. He has consistency now. He’s always there. four or five years now, he’s incredible. He’s the best.’

The result lifts Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table, but the Reds have a game in hand on all of their competitors who play later on this weekend.
