'Too hot to handle': Rio Ferdinand hails 'devastating' Liverpool talent
Rio Ferdinand has described Liverpool star Mohamed Salah as “the most devastating player around at the moment”.
The Reds forward has been sensational for most of his time at Anfield.
However, Salah has reached truly stratospheric levels this season.
The Egypt international has a staggering 23 goals and nine assists from just 26 Reds games in all competitions.
In Salah’s last Liverpool game before heading off to the Africa Cup of Nations, he scored a superb goal in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
The 29-year-old skipped effortlessly around Marcos Alonso before producing a top finish at Edouard Mendy’s near post.
Ferdinand, speaking on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE, admitted that he enjoyed seeing Salah score at the weekend.
“He’s in my Fantasy team so I was buzzing when he scored that, to be honest with you,” he said.
“The way he stood Alonso up shimmied a bit moved him up, pressed pause for a minute and slapped it in the goal
“he’s the most devastating player around at the moment. he’s so decisive, getting two or three chances a game
“He’s too hot to handle now.”
