Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard couldn’t help but show his admiration for Mohamed Salah in a brilliant one-on-one video for LFC TV, claiming the forward is his current favourite player at the club.
The duo met for a video for the official Liverpool website, as legends past and present came together to discuss the art of goalscoring, Liverpool teams, and more. The pair never played together as Gerrard left the club in 2015 after 17 years, two years before Salah joined from Roma.
Despite that, the pair have both scored in a Champions League final before going further to lift the trophy but Salah has gone ahead to beat most of Gerrard’s scoring record across different competitions. In addition, Salah moved level on total goals for the club with Gerrard in all competitions with 186 before the end of the season.
Speaking about the forward for LFC TV in a video titled ‘When Stevie Met Salah’, Gerrard displayed great humility as he explained that his son actually loves Salah more than he does his own father when speaking about his favourite Liverpool players past and present.
“Who was your favourite player?” Salah asked Gerrard, who replied “Growing up? John Barnes.
“He was like yourself, a dribbler, exciting, he could score individual goals like yourself, and he could win a game. Now my favourite is you. It has to be you because Lio, my Lio, he’s obsessed! He loves you more than me – you’re the only human he loves more than myself.” Gerrard explained.
Salah recorded 30 goals and 16 assists last season across all competitions, a feat that was only surpassed by Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, as the Egyptian sat amongst the very best despite Liverpool’s disappointing season.
With his current rate, Salah is looking to continue to climb the club’s all-time highest goalscorers list, as he currently sits joint-fourth with Gerrard on 186. Next up is Billy Liddell’s 228 to catch in third place which is certainly achievable if he stays for a further few years.
