'Unbelievable': Harvey Barnes says Liverpool have an amazing player in their ranks, others can learn from him

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been lauded by Leicester counterpart Harvey Barnes on The Beautiful Game Podcast.

The Reds forward has been sensational for most of his time at Anfield, but he’s reached truly stratospheric levels this season.

Salah has registered a staggering 23 goals and nine assists from just 26 Reds games in all competitions this term.

Meanwhile, Barnes has gone from strength to strength at Leicester, becoming one of their key players.

Last season, the 24-year-old registered 13 goals and four assists in all competitions.

England manager Gareth Southgate rewarded Barnes with his England debut in October 2020.

However, he suffered a knee injury in February last year which saw him sidelined for the 2021-22 run-in and Euro 2020.

Barnes – who Jurgen Klopp reportedly rates highly – is now fit again and has registered 10 goal contributions this term.

And he’s eager to continue his development by learning from the best in the business, such as the Liverpool star.

“You look at Salah this year and the numbers he has been putting up,” Barnes told The Beautiful Game Podcast.

“He has scored some great goals where he is dribbling, taking players on and scoring some unbelievable goals.

“His running in behind and his desire to score goals is what the top attackers have.

“Even though you’re playing wide, you’ve got to use yourself as an attacker and a striker when you’re around the box and he does that so well.

“It’s something you can learn from. Like I said, the number he is putting up are numbers you want to recreate those figures.

“You can take bits out of his game and it’s only going to improve you as a player.”
