Messi and Ronaldo have won the last 10 World Player of the Year awards but Gerrard is of the opinion that Salah can be the first player to break their hold on the accolade.

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp also gave his opinion on Salah being the best in the world.

He said, “You always create stories. If you think he is the best in the world – write it,”

“What I will say he is in world class shape, 100 percent. But to be the best in the world, you have to do that over a longer period. There are one or two others who are doing that, I would say.”
