Liverpool legend claims that Mohamed Salah isn’t the clubs main man

Unexpected

Despite Mohamed Salah impressing for Liverpool this season, one club legend has named another player as the sides main man.

Liverpool are known for their goalscoring prowess this campaign and have certainly impressed on that front.

Mohamed Salah has been a big part of that and has scored 28 goals in the Premier League along this season.

While the Egyptian has been getting all the praise over the past few months, there is one player who has gone under the radar.

That player is Roberto Firmino who has been scoring goals himself but has been assisting just as much.

The forward has 14 goals in the Premier League and 7 assists but is known for what he brings to the forward line.

Now, Liverpool legend Ian Rush has named the Brazilian as the Anfield sides main man.

“Everyone knows how amazing Mohamed Salah is, but if you’re looking at one player Liverpool rely on it’s Bobby Firmino,” said Rush.

“With his closing down he reminds me a little bit of myself. Not only does he work hard for the team, he’s also very skilful. He does everything.

“He may not be regularly getting 30 goals a season, but he makes the opposition make mistakes.

“He’s a rare breed of a Brazilian and I think his talents suit the Premier League down to a T.

“He’s tireless, every manager would love a player like that in his team. We are very, very lucky that we have him in our side.”

Liverpool legend claims Salah is on Messi and Ronaldo’s level

While Rush has explained how important Firmino is, he hasn’t understated how good Salah is.

In fact, he’s compared the player to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
