Henry says Mo Salah is not the best; names the player ahead of the Liverpool star

Henry on salah

Thierry Henry believes Mohamed Salah should not be classed as the best player in the world and says Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema are ahead of the Liverpool star.

The Egyptian forward made an outstanding start to the campaign with Liverpool with 12 goals in 11 appearances so far.

Henry agrees that Salah is the best player in the Premier League at the moment. But the former Arsenal and Barcelona player says Benzema should not be overlooked for his efforts for Real Madrid and France.

When asked by CBS Sport if he considers Salah as the best player, Henry said: ‘Not yet. ‘The goals that he is scoring, at the moment, are very good. But how can you forget about Lewandowski? How can you forget about Benzema? How can you forget doing it at the national level also?

‘Right now, he’s suffering a bit with Egypt. It’s not easy. But he’s not doing it there yet. But those goals are ridiculous. I love Salah. But he’s not yet the best.

‘Is he the best player right now in the Premier League? By a distance. ‘But on current form are you still not putting Benzema in there with the way he is playing right now?

‘The assists that he has, the goals that he has, what he’s been doing for France at the Euros and the Nations League. ‘I don’t know if you’ve noticed what he’s been doing. I’m just saying, it’s not that clear, for me.

‘If you’ve watched Real Madrid since the beginning of the season, if you’ve watched what he’s doing for France, it’s not that clear at all.

‘If you talk about where he’s going right now and this is why for me Benzema is ahead, he’s been a complete player with goals and assists for a long time.

‘Mo Salah is becoming a good player, not only a great goalscorer.’
