and Mohamed Salah claim made by Terry Venables

MOHAMED SALAH is the third best player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

That’s the verdict of former Barcelona boss Terry Venables, who’s hailed the Egyptian as he hunts down Ian Rush’s record of 47 goals in a season for Liverpool.

Salah has consigned his previous sorry stint in the Premier League with Chelsea to distant memory since joining Liverpool from Roma last summer.

And his record of 43 goals in 47 games under Jurgen Klopp has led to claims he should be vying with Ronaldo and Messi for the Ballon d’Or at the end of the season.

Venables has now offered his take on Salah’s exploits while claiming he would still pick one of the Real Madrid or Barcelona stars over the 25-year-old.

"That Salah is something else," Venables told the Daily Mail.

"Four goals behind Ian Rush for a season? When you get home study how many chances Rush had, where his goals came from.

"He was the centre forward, Salah isn't in that position, yet still he has scored all those goals.

"Look, if we're in the playground now and we are picking sides, you could pick between Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Salah would be third pick. A good third, mind.

"Cristiano with his muscle and showmanship, like a gladiator. Power. He's some player.

"But it would still be Messi as No 1 for me. Those shorts of his look like they should swallow him. He's like a Dickensian character.

"But he's a genius with a ball. I'd pick him as No 1 every time."

Salah will be eager seal Liverpool’s place in the Champions League final when they take on Roma on Wednesday night.

Klopp’s side lead the semi-finals tie thanks to a 5-2 win over Eusebio Di Francesco’s men last Tuesday.

It is a laudable achievement for the continent of Africa that we can have somebody like a person of MO Sarah to contend with some soccer greats like Lionel Andres Messi,  Neymar Da Silva Jr. and Cristiano Dos Santos Alvero Ronaldo.  Congrats to Sarah,  Congrats to Africa!!!
