English Premier League legend Alan Shearer has given Mohamed Salah the ultimate compliment of his career. It just can’t get better than this one really.

While the Liverpool star was outshone by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2021 Ballon d’Or award, Shearer believes that Salah has suffered the public’s obsession with Messi and Ronaldo.

“Mohamed Salah is the best in the world right now. The best goalscorer and the best player, full stop,” Shearer told the Athletic.

“The little magician is doing his stuff in the best league in the world and he’s doing it the against the best teams and in the biggest games. Week-in week-out, year-in year-out, Salah performs magic.

“How he came seventh in the latest Ballon d’Or voting is anybody’s guess. There’s an obsession with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, which is understandable given how dominant they’ve been over the modern era, but if you gave me a choice of any player for my team it would be Salah,” concluded the Premier League’s greatest-ever goalscorer.

Coming up next for Salah and the Reds is the visit of Newcastle United at Anfield this Thursday.
