The Egypt international has been in superb form for the Merseyside outfit since having signed for the Reds from AS Roma in the summer transfer window last year.
The 25-year-old has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season and he has scored an incredible 29 goals in 31 top flight games for Klopp’s men to help them up into third place in the table.
Salah is likely to be one of the shortlisted players to win the PFA award this season, with Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne the other leading candidate.
Klopp feels that Salah would be a worthy winner of the award but also admits that De Bruyne would be a good choice as well.
Speaking to Liverpool FC’s website before the Champions League clash with Manchester City, Klopp said: “I think Mo would deserve it 100 per cent.
“As his manager, I’d say, ‘come on, prove it by playing at this level for the rest of the season’. That’s how it is.
“Both players have played an outstanding season with obvious highlights; scoring goals and creating chances – which is what everyone wants to see.
“I am happy that I don’t have to make this decision. Yes, Mo would deserve it. But if I said now that Kevin de Bruyne should have no chance I’d be lying.
“He’s a fantastic player and City will be champions, so he has a trophy. Maybe we can at least win the other one.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Everton at Goodison Park in the crunch Merseyside derby clash.
The Reds are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish in the top four for the second season running.
