“Only the best players in the world score goals like this. It was the first touch, the first challenge he wins, to go there and put him on his right foot and end the situation like he did. Absolutely exceptional, ”Klopp said.
“Because this club never forgets anything, people will talk about this goal for a long, long time, in 50, 60 years, when they remember this match,” he added.
Klopp suggested that Salah, who has six goals in his first seven Premier League games, deserved more recognition for the quality of his attacks.
“If Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo score that goal, then the world says yes because it is world class. He’s one of the best players in the world, that’s right, ”he said.
Salah himself had little recollection of the details of the goal, judging from his post-match comments.
“I have to look at it to see. I remember. It would be more special if he won the game, but it is what it is. It is the result. I think it’s a good goal, there isn’t much to say, ”he said.
