Camerounian Legend, Samuel Eto’s strongly believes Mohamed Salah is on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Salah has been outstanding since joining Liverpool and banging 21 goals this season. The former AS Roma striker is currently the African footballer of the year.
Eto’o said “He has probably been one of the best players in the world.
“His performances for Liverpool have been great and, for me, I am always glad to see African players at the top level.
“He deserves his award and hopefully he has more years like this.”
Salah, 25, looked like he had a one-way ticket out of the Premier League when he flopped at Chelsea.
He was loaned to Fiorentina and Roma and there were doubts over the Reds’ £34.3million move for him in the summer.
Former Ivorian striker and Africa’s player of the year, Didier Drogba had this to say about the Egyptian sensation “He has always been a good player. We all knew he had it in him.“Maybe now he works with managers who are more willing to give him more responsibility.
“If you look with his national team too, he is maybe the biggest player they have.
“In Italy, he did very well with a big club and now he has gone to England and he is doing even better. He has been fantastic.”
