Cuper doubts whether Liverpool star can become world's best

Posted Marcha 25, 2018

Liverpool legend Ian Rush will not be surprised if free-scoring Mohamed Salah breaks his long-standing record of 47 goals in a season across all competitions.

Any deal for the player would now have to be at least £15 million, which would represent a significant profit for Stoke.

"The disappointment is that we lost in the final minutes of the game, but we benefited much from this meeting", Cuper said in the post-match press conference. "He's got the goals, I don't see why he couldn't win it".


Salah is the current top scorer of the illustrious Premier League with 28 goals and made headlines when he struck four times and dished out an assist to guide Liverpool to a 5-0 rout of Watford last Saturday.

Mohamed Salah deserves to be considered among the world's best players, according to his Egypt coach Hector Cuper. "I'm more pleased that we won three trophies than I did scoring 47 goals", the Welshman added.

Jurgen Klopp is on the look out for another attacking midfielder after failing to sign a replacement for Philippe Coutinho following his January move to Barcelona and it seems Sobhi is on his radar.


The newspaper cites a report from TeamTalk that suggests Liverpool bosses are now showing a keen interest in signing Sobhi and are ready to formailise their pursuit with a firm offer.

Rush is hoping that will change next season. He followed up with 26 goals in 44 appearances in 1984-85, then recorded goal-scoring returns of 33 and 40 in the two seasons after that.

"It's great having individual trophies, but in my [47-goal] season we won three trophies".


He is set to share a pitch with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, as Egypt and Portugal face each other in an international friendly later this evening.
