Andrew Robertson, a Liverpool midfielder, agrees with Jamie Carragher’s bold Mohamed Salah remark.
Andy Robertson believes Mohamed Salah, a Liverpool teammate, is underappreciated.
Liverpool fans will be relieved to leave Anfield after their team’s 2-2 draw with title rivals Manchester City. Despite taking the lead twice, Jurgen Klopp’s side were lucky to secure a draw, as City were dominant throughout and had several half-chances that would have been tucked away on another day.
Sadio Mane, a Senegalese winger, scored the game’s first goal in the 59th minute after latching on to a Mohamed Salah pass that cut through the Cityzens defense.
After a mazy move by Gabriel Jesus, Phil Foden, who ran makeshift right-back James Milner ragged throughout, equalised 10 minutes later with a stunning strike into the far corner.
Salah then produced a world-class solo goal in the 76th minute, putting the game out of reach. The Egyptian darted in from the right flank before deceiving three defenders and putting the ball into the corner from a tight angle, sending the Kop into raptures.
Their joy was short-lived again five minutes later, as Foden cut the ball back to Kevin de Bruyne on the edge of the box, who bent it past the hapless Alisson to bring the game level.
Salah’s goal, his sixth of the season, deservedly grabbed the headlines, and many believe he is routinely delivering enough to warrant his status as one of the finest.
He has an incredible 101 Premier League goals in 152 games, which is even more astounding considering he is a right-winger rather than a striker.
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson expressed his admiration for the 29-year-old after the City game on Sunday, saying: “He is right up there (as one of the world’s finest).” I still believe he is vastly underappreciated. The goal is to do something extraordinary.” Salah and the Scotsman have been teammates for five seasons and have won the league title, the Champions League, and the UEFA Super Cup together.
Jamie Carragher, a Reds legend, concurred with Robertson’s assessment, saying: “I don’t think there’s a better player in the world at the moment, in the Champions League, with his record since the start of the season.”
