Jurgen Klopp has nothing but praise for Mohamed Salah after he scored a stunning goal against Manchester City.

The Egyptian star scored Liverpool’s second goal in their 2-2 draw against the reining champions on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking to the media after the clash, the German technician said Salah’s strike showed that he is one of the best footballers in the world.

“If Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi scores that goal they say it is world class. Mo Salah scores that goal because he is world class,” said Klopp.

After receiving the ball on the right wing while surrounded by three players, a clever roll and flick on to his other boot put Bernardo Silva on the floor before Salah moved past Aymeric Laporte and then fired a superb strike with his weaker right foot to beat Ederson on his far post.

“Only the best players in the world score goals like this,” added Klopp.

“The first touch, the first challenge he wins then putting it on his right foot and finishing the situation was absolutely exceptional.

“This club never forget these things so people will talk about this goal for a long time, in 50 or 60 years, they will remember this goal.”

Salah has now scored nine goals for Liverpool in all competitions since the start of the new season.

This was his sixth Premier League goal in seven appearances. He has also contributed three assists for the Reds who sit in second place on the league table with 15 points from seven games.
