Mohamed Salah

Ian Rush is Liverpool's all-time leading goalscorer with 346 goals. Mohamed Salah may still be a long way off that total, but on Saturday the Egyptian confirmed his place in an elite five-man group of Liverpool players who have reached 200 goals.

Ian Rush said of Mo Salah: "It’s a huge achievement in itself to get to 200 goals, not many do that, so first things first, congratulations on that!

"His impact has been phenomenal, and he’s not only a quality footballer, but a fantastic role model for people in different parts of the world.

In Egypt, he’s a god, and he’s given boys and girls there the belief that they can go on and be a professional footballer. That’s the sort of person he is.

"As a player he can hardly do any more, I watch him now and his overall game is a million times better than when he first came.

"When he came, he was scoring goals for fun. Now he’s scoring goals for fun and making them for fun! His assists are just as important as his goals now, which shows how much of an all-round player he has become."
