News'What a level!' - Thomas Frank full of praise for Mohamed Salah
Thomas Frank hailed Liverpool star Mohamed Salah after seeing his Brentford side sunk by the Egyptian's brilliance on Sunday.
Salah scored twice in the Reds’ 3-0 Premier League win at Anfield, taking his tally to 12 goals for the season in all competitions and becoming the first player in Liverpool’s history to score in the first six home games of a league campaign.
And afterwards, Brentford boss Frank was full of praise for the Reds’ No.11.
“Mo Salah, [Jürgen] Klopp praises him a lot, but I actually don’t know if he gets enough praise,” he told his post-match press conference.
“Off the top of my head, there is a chance he’s the best player in the Premier League, potentially. In terms of goals and assists. What a level!
“He must be one of the best offensive players in the world. Like, not top 10, but top three.
“So when you have a player of that quality [against you], you just know there is a problem.”
On Salah’s goals, Frank added: “The second goal, we are not doing well enough defensively, but the first one is a clear, signature Liverpool attack. We lose it, counter-attack, bang, into Salah, goal.
“But not every player scores from that situation. That just shows his quality.”
