    Has Mohamed Salah proved that he is a world-class player?

    He is having an amazing season, statistically at a level similar to the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, et al. He may even be a Ballon d'Or contender at the rate he is going.

    Despite this being his first real standout season, it can be argued that he is already a world-class footballer.

    There is no argument, he is world class. It's not just the fact he is breaking many records at Liverpool but the way he plays.

    If you watch the goal v Portugal, he curled it around the player and post to place it perfectly without any effort. World Class goal from a World Class player.

    Having a world class season . For him to be considered world class he needs to do for more than a couple of seasons. Big test for him is next season.

    World Class? Far too soon to judge. Mahrez and Vardy were running rings around the top Premier League defences a couple of seasons ago and powering Leicester City to Premiership Champions. Would anyone claim they're world class? Of course not!

    World Class is a term(in football) usually referred to a player who could make the starting line up in a world XI or a European XI (highest standard of football of all continents). At this moment, based on this season Salah would easily make it into both of these two teams.

    Mahrez is a good play maker, very talented and Vardy is a good striker but they can't be compared to Salah. He has broken all sorts of records in his first season. Also we have to remember plenty of other players performed well for Leicester. Mahrez and Vardy weren't even the best players for Leicester when they won the title.

    I would say so. Although it is just one season at the moment you have to apply some judgment to what we have seen. World class is about consistently looking a class apart from your peers, not just on the scoresheet but also to the naked eye. Absolutely, he is world class.

    But, just like Salah now, Vardy and Mahrez were also running rings around the top Premiership defenses as they helped lowly Leicester City win the Premiership ahead of all the Big Boys.

    Vardy scored in 11 consecutive Premier League matches, a record, and was voted FWA Footballer of the Year, and the 2016 Barclays Premier League Player of the Season

    Mahrez was voted 2016 Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year

    As I said, would anyone have claimed them as being 'world class' that year? Of course not, not even by a Leicester City fan!

    Ahead of a front 3 of, say, Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi in a World XI?

    If Salah keeps performing at this level next season, and perhaps helps his club or country win a trophy or two along the way, then maybe. Until then far too soon to judge.

    N’Golo Kanté was the key player for Leicster, he won two awards in 2017 PFA Player of the Year award and Footballer of the Year award. It can be argued he is world class too.

    You make a fair point, another season will ensure everyone sees him as world class but for me he has shown enough so far. It's all about opinions.

    If he was world class, he wouldn't be playing for Liverpool. Seriously though Mahrez did the same two years ago and has been a consistent performer ever since. I'd like Salah to do the same next year at the very least before calling him world class.

    He is definetly playing world class. I think he can pile on goals every season playing for Madrid or Barca if given a run in those teams

    No he needs to score another 30 goals this season to be world class. Geez what else must one do to be proven world class.

    Have you heard Liverpool win the premier league ? Liverpool have been trying to lure top players on the pretext of their so called history. Have not even a premier league title. Too bad the players find it out sooner or later and move onto proper clubs. Suarez, Coutinho, Sterling all did it.

    I've not heard but I have seen them when I was very young. The club has won 5 European Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 3 UEFA Super Cups, 18 League titles, 7 FA Cups, 8 League Cups, and 15 FA Community Shields. Sure it's been a while but we will challenge for the title next season and are still in the CL atm.

    Sauarez and Coutinho when to Barcelona, they are South Americans who prefer to play in Spain but for one of the biggest clubs in the World. Sterling fell out with Liverpool. No big LFC player will move to an English club because they think it's bigger than LFC.

    League titles when all of the other teams were ****. Decent European history I'd give you that. I hope you don't miss the ' history ' word cause that's all Liverpool are now and I made sure I used the word.
    I support the team which are going to batter Liverpool tonight in the champions league and indeed next week. Good luck .

    It was a different era, LFC have been a top English side for many decades. If in all that time the rest were rubbish as you claim, we must have been very good to be at the top for so long.

    Which TEAM do you support?

    2 goals in the first half of the semi final opening leg against Roma. This could be the tie done and dusted by the end of tonight. 43 goals for the season.

    Not world class apparently, needs more time, flash in the pan etc...

    Whoever wins the CL will most likely win BdO, unless Brazil wins the WC.

    It stopped being about who's the best long back, it's about who wins CL.

    True, otherwise without doing anything outside Spain or for Argentina, Messi won't have won so many BdO - it's Barca and it's golden generation (........ and UEFA a little) did it for him. Otherwise, the team he had from 2006 to 2016 for Argentina - a true grit would have won at least one WC & couple of Copas

    By the way, Brazil won't win WC - my 2nd favorite team, but Russia is too cold for Latinos. My hunch is, it's Germany V France Final.

    I have prepared a post on WC, just couldn't finish - it's a comprehensive look considering the venues as well.

    And, instead of Balkan, Messi & Argentina is based at Moscow, N Novgorod & Leningrad (St Pittsburgh) in Baltic coast - already that group has Croats, Ice Landers & Super Eagles.
