Danny Murphy believes Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is a special talent for the amount of goals he’s scored from a wide position.
The right-winger has now scored 70 goals in 100 Premier League appearances since he joined the Reds and has been a goal machine under manager Jurgen Klopp.
He’s managed 20 goals in 39 games across all competitions so far this season for the Merseyside giants and remains a key part of a team that is charging towards a first Premier League title.
The Egypt international is currently preparing for his side’s Champions League second leg showdown against Atletico Madrid and he was influential in winning Europe’s top prize last season.
Murphy has raved about Salah’s impact on Liverpool and recognises him as a brilliant professional.
“Mo Salah is a unique player. To score this many goals so quickly from that wide position is sensational,” Murphy told talkSPORT.
“He’s probably been as good a buy for Liverpool as anyone over the last ten years. I know Luis Suarez was sensational, but Salah’s consistency and his durability as well, he very rarely misses games.
“And he’s so unassuming, he goes about his business so under the radar. He’s not flash, he doesn’t do any silly provocative celebrations, he just keeps banging in goals.”
Liverpool signed Salah for £34million (BBC) in 2017 from Roma and to say he’s been a bargain addition would be an understatement, as he’s made Chelsea look pretty foolish for selling him to Roma previously in 2016.
The 27-year-old was electric when he first burst onto the scene with the Reds and to this day he’s still firing in the goals at a decent rate.
He’s part of a front three alongside Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino that is arguably the most feared in Europe, with his danger cutting on from the right to his favoured left foot so difficult to stop.
