Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has described has compared Mohamed Salah to Kenny Dalglish, hailing him as the best in the world after breaking a Liverpool record last night.

Mohamed Salah's identity as the current World Best player is constantly declared in the mouths of stakeholders of the game.

The Egyptian's heroics on Tuesday night against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda de Metropolitano kept rising hopes that he is the player made for Liverpool.

Salah scored two goals as Jurgen Klopp's men triumphed over Diego Simeone's side 3-2 in Madrid in the Champions League third Group stage fixture.

The two strikes means Mohamed Salah is the first player in history to score in nine consecutive matches for Liverpool, with 11 goals to his account.

Tony Cascarino heaped huge praise on Salah and compared him to a Reds icon saying, “I support Liverpool and I’ve always said King Kenny (is the best). They always talk about European player of the year and I saw anyone who gets past King Kenny is going to be a hell of a player.

“Now I feel like it is super King Mo who has come about because even being put alongside that calibre of player is a statement in itself.

“Kenny was up there with the all-time legends of Division 1 football in England,” he said on talkSPORT Breakfast.
