Rio Ferdinand has lavished yet more praise on Mohamed Salah following his superb form for Liverpool FC this season.

The 25-year-old has been one of European football’s top performing stars this season following his switch to Anfield from Italian side AS Roma last summer.

Salah scored a staggering 44 goals in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side to help them finish in fourth place in the Premier League table and secure their spot in the Champions League for next season.

The forward’s campaign ended in disappointing fashion on Saturday night when he was forced off with a shoulder injury during Liverpool FC’s Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

It remains to be seen whether he will be fit to feature for Egypt in the World Cup this summer.

However, former Manchester United star Ferdinand believes that Salah deserves huge amounts of praise for the strong performances he has been producing for Liverpool FC since his move back to England last summer.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday night, Ferdinand said: “He has been a revelation.

“He plays the game in the right way. He’s a breath of fresh air. Where he seems happiest is on that football pitch.

“Next season, can he replicate this? That’s the key. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have done.”

Liverpool FC will now look to strengthen their squad this summer as they bid to try and win the Premier League title next season. They are still searching for their first trophy under Klopp.
