Arsene Wenger compares Mo’ Salah to Lionel Messi

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger in a recent statement compared Liverpool striker and Egypt star, Mohammed Salah with Barcelona star, Lionel Messi.

Wenger in his statement stated that Salah is a ‘complete player’ like Messi.


Salah has been at his best this season again as Liverpool continue to lead at the forefront on the Premier League table.

The Egyptian forward has netted 13 goals in 23 appearances across all competitions, as well as seven assists this season.

He also paved way for Naby Keita’s opener in the Reds’ 2-1 win over Monterrey in the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday.

Wenger, who is now FIFA’s new Head of Global Football development, applauded the Egyptian’s improvement as a provider and goalscorer.
