Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to join thousands of others in heaping praise on Mohamed Salah, after Liverpool hammered Watford 5-0.
What’s the story?
Well, while others eulogised over the Liverpool No.11’s dribbling ability, finishing skills and pace, Lineker praised something slightly different.
The BBC Match of the Day host revealed his love for Salah’s attitude, and said the £34m man always plays with a smile on his face.
You can see Lineker’s tweet in full below.
One of the things I love about @MoSalah and there are many, is that however things are going for him in a game, he always plays with a smile on his face. Such a wonderful player with a personality to match. 😁— Gary Lineker 💙 (@GaryLineker) October 16, 2021
It’s an interesting thing to note after such a mesmeric display, although it’s fascinating to see Lineker pick up on it.
It just goes to show how strong Salah is mentally.
Where some players might fade away when the tide is against them, the 29-year-old seems to become even more determined to cause havoc for opponents.
Is Mohamed Salah the best player on the planet?
After full-time, Jürgen Klopp boldly claimed that Salah is the best player in the world right now.
Some may argue in favour of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe or Karim Benzema, although we agree with Klopp.
What Salah is doing now is remarkable – he has added a frightening consistency to his game, which gives him the aura of a great.
He is slowly entering the Premier League Hall of Fame. Last season, you would have him in the same conversation as the likes of Eden Hazard.
Now, Salah is approaching the levels of Thierry Henry and Wayne Rooney.
Should the Egyptian end the current campaign with a Premier League or Champions League medal, he must surely bag the Ballon d’Or as well.
