Andy Goldstein has named the five past and present wingers that he thinks are better than Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Salah etched his name into the record books over the weekend, with his two goals against Manchester United making him Liverpool’s all-time top Premier League scorer, but Goldstein told Darren Bent on Talksport Drive that there are a few names who he thinks are better than the Egyptian.
“Before the break, I said I’d find five or six left or right-wingers that I think are better than Salah.
🗣️ "It's very special. This record was in my mind since I came here"

Bent took his presenter’s suggestions on board, but threw a curveball, saying: “Before you named these, I said that you can’t find me players that play in Salah’s position that are better than him. Salah plays on the right of a three and he is arguably the best in that position in Premier League history.:
The debate about whether he’s the best winger in Premier League history will rage on forever, but there’s no doubting his class as he continues to show the world why he is so important to Liverpool.
