In a recent discussion on talkSPORT, Andy Goldstein posed a question to Paul Ince, the Manchester United icon, regarding Mohamed Salah's status as a world-class player. Ince acknowledged Salah's exceptional goal-scoring prowess, stating,

"Is he a world-class goalscorer? Yes. His record clearly speaks volumes."

However, Ince expressed reservations about labeling Salah as world-class in a broader technical sense, pointing out occasional shortcomings in his deliveries when cutting in on his left foot.


Despite these critiques, Ince affirmed Salah's impact in terms of goal scoring and his ability to influence games. Since joining Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017, Salah has had a remarkable impact on the Premier League, especially during his debut season where he netted 32 goals in 36 appearances. His overall tally for Liverpool stands at 209 goals in 340 appearances, making him the third-highest scorer in the club's history, surpassing legends such as Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, and Kenny Dalglish.


Salah's recent performance includes a crucial last-minute penalty against Manchester United at Old Trafford, securing a 2-2 draw and setting an impressive record. As Liverpool continues to vie for the title in a close race with Arsenal and Manchester City, Salah's return to peak fitness is timely. His contributions could prove pivotal in Jurgen Klopp's final season at Anfield, where the German coach aims to add another league title to his accolades, which include a Premier League, a Champions League, an FA Cup, and two Carabao Cups over a nine-year tenure.
