Egypt captain Ahmed Elmohamady says Mohamed Salah should be counted among the top three players in the world.

The Liverpool forward won the Golden Boot after scoring 22 goals in the Premier League, which he shared with teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

He also helped his side lift the Champions League trophy earlier this month, and Elmohamady believes the Reds No.11 is now one of the best footballers on the planet.

“Salah is now one of the best three players in the world. This is a huge deal for the country and the Egyptian team,” he said, as quoted by Goal.

“Salah being on any team will help it and be a great addition. Everybody anticipates his performance, so this is a positive thing and a good addition for the Egyptian team.

“As has been said, Salah is one of the 23 players on the list. Each player will help the others.

“We play as one team, but having Salah with us is a positive thing and an important thing for us as a team and as players.”

Salah’s national team Egypt are set to open the Africa Cup of Nations against Zimbabwe this Friday.
