Ian Wright believes Mohamed Salah has achieved something at Liverpool that legends Thierry Henry and Emmanuel Petit did not at Arsenal.
The 25-year-old has scored a staggering 41 goals in 46 appearances since moving to the Reds for £37million last summer.
Salah’s incredible season was capped on Sunday when he was awarded the PFA Player of the Year award.
Despite the likes of Henry and Petit holding legendary statuses at Arsenal, which Salah doesn’t quite have yet at Liverpool, Wright believes the Red forward impressed more in his first season.
Wright wrote in The Sun : "It’s easy to forget now, given the heights they [Petit and Henry] went on to scale so regularly, how both took time to adjust when they first arrived in England.
"The pair of them came here on the back of troubled times at Juventus and Inter Milan respectively — but didn’t dominate the Prem straight away.
"Egyptian ace Salah, on the other hand, didn’t just hit the ground running, he did so at such a pace that he would have left even Usain Bolt for dead."
