In their initial 29 fixtures this season, the Reds have hit 66 goals, the second-best record in the top flight, and need only two additional successes to be affirmed as England champions.
In the final third, Rooney praised Salah as an industrious threat to Liverpool, in this manner featuring parallels between Cristiano Ronaldo, the 28-year-old, and 5-time Ballon d’Or champ.
Before being snapped up by Real Madrid, the Juventus striker gained legendary status for his performances at United somewhere in the range of 2003 and 2009, and Rooney feels that Salah beats fear into defenders similarly that the Portuguese used to at Old Trafford.
Joined’s record scorer told The Times: “Mo Salah is starting to do what Ronaldo accomplished for Manchester United as far as simply being there and not so much returning to guard however always being a threat so in case you’re a defender or midfielder playing against him. On the counterattack, you’re scared at him.”
Salah will be back in dispute for a place in Klopp’s starting XI when Liverpool get back on the contribute just because more than a quarter of a year against Everton on Sunday.
The Reds have lost points only twice during the season, and are required to come back to winning ways in a critical Merseyside derby that will be played behind closed doors at Goodison Park because of the progressing coronavirus threat.
