Kleberson believes Mo Salah has yet to match Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s efforts on the pitch.

While the former Man United ace sees the Liverpool hero as an “always brilliant” performer, he believes the Argentine and Portuguese stars are staying on the streets.

Salah, 29, wowed fans with his cunning and goals in his second Premier League stint after sealing a £ 36.9million transfer to Anfield from Rome in 2017.

The player, who was with Chelsea for a season and a half, scored 137 in 214 appearances for the Reds, helping Jurgen Klopp’s side win a Champions League crown and their first-ever Prem title.

However, Kleberson told Paddy Power: “Mohamed Salah is not the best player in the world, but he has always been brilliant.

“He has been playing excellent football for a long time. It’s certainly not a one-season wonder and I can understand why Jürgen Klopp called it the best in Europe.

“Next to Salah, Liverpool have a good side that provide great support, and he looks happy there.

“Things are going well for Salah, but he is not the best player in the world at the moment.

“For me, it’s hard to say who is the best player in the world because I measure him by those who play well for the club and the country.

“Football has changed a lot. For many years we have had Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and sometimes Neymar, but there is no one who has shown more than them.
