Klopp: Salah on the way to Messi comparisons

Liverpool GETTY Liverpool will be confident of beating Watford at Anfield on Saturday
Shannon Reynolds | 18 March, 2018, 16:43

"I don't think Mo wants to be compared with Lionel Messi", he said.

"He [Messi] is the one that is doing what he is doing for 20 years it feels like".

It was another brilliant display from Salah, who seems to be going from strength to strength at Anfield following his move to the club past year.

"For Mo to be involved in five goals is fantastic but to score four is even more fantastic", said Klopp. But how it always in life, if you have the skills then you have to show it constantly. "We have beaten them for a start".

But such are Salah's similarities with the Argentine great, that even his goals are starting to resemble Messi's.

The result never seemed in doubt after Salah opened the scoring in the fourth minute.

"The goals we scored were unbelievably good, and the boys didn't stop", added Klopp.

"If he's around for long enough he's well capable of going on to achieve whatever he wants, whatever he wants to be as a footballer".

"We're in the quarter-finals and have the same chances of winning as each of the other seven teams".

The Egyptian winger has drawn comparisons with Barcelona's Messi due to the style of a number of those goals, and Klopp was full of praise for the "special" 25-year-old.

Salah deservedly took the plaudits after the game, with Klopp even comparing the former AS Roma man with five time Ballon d'Or victor Messi in his post-match duties with Sky Sports.

Around 5,000 people were sheltering at the nearby town of Adra and many more would arrive on Friday, the Adra mayor said. Yesterday, a Turkish air strike killed 11 civilians in the city as they were preparing to leave, it said.

Salah was at his brilliant best at Anfield on the night, as he contributed with a quite staggering total of four goals to help Liverpool to another important victory.

The Egyptian forward had already surpassed Suarez's tally of 31 goals in the 2013-14 season prior to Saturday's match against Watford but was still level with Torres.

The Egypt worldwide forged ahead of the injured Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot, scoring twice in each half, and providing the assist for Roberto Firmino's expertly taken goal.

43 mins: Salah taps in a cross from the left from Robertson on the stroke of half-time.

Liverpool continued from where they left off in the first half as Firmino also got on the score sheet in the 49th minute as he flicked in Salah's cross.

First hat-trick for the Reds. He is strong. He is a constant threat and he gets better and better.

"But his performance this season in a debut season has been magnificent". Just can't keep him out of the game, eh?

"I think Mo is on the way". Took out four Watford players.

"I spoke to Gareth Southgate and Adam spoke to him".
