Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has revealed that only former Reds star, John Barnes comes close to matching the start winger, Mohamed Salah has made at the club.
Carragher made this claim after Liverpool beat Manchester City 4-3 in a stunning game at Anfield on Sunday with goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The former defender believes the Egyptian International has made the best start than any Liverpool signing ever.
“I think that the start Salah’s made, I can’t actually think of a Liverpool signing who’s ever in the history of the club made a better start as a signing,” he told Sky Sports.
“Suarez was maybe a better signing all in all over three or four years, but in terms of the actual start, as soon as you come into the club, only John Barnes comes close to matching Mohamed Salah’s start at Liverpool.
“John Barnes when he came in the late 80s he was fantastic as soon as he came in.
“I can’t think of too many others who have made the impact,” he said.
