Former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson may have bid farewell to the club, but his admiration for his former teammates and his love for Liverpool still run deep. In a recent interview with SSC Sports, the Sunderland-born midfielder was asked to name the best player in the world, and he unequivocally chose his friend and former colleague, Mohamed Salah.
Henderson expressed his bias towards Salah but backed it up by highlighting the Egyptian’s dedication, sacrifice, and consistent performances both in training and on the field. He commended Salah’s goal-scoring prowess and recognized him as the best player in the world at the moment.

Liverpool fans, particularly those of a red persuasion, are unlikely to argue with Henderson’s sentiments. Despite the club’s underwhelming campaign last season, Salah continued to shine and deliver exceptional performances.
If Liverpool can achieve significant success in the upcoming season, Salah could find himself in contention for prestigious individual awards such as the Ballon d’Or. His consistent displays throughout his career certainly merit such recognition.
Salah has been a crucial figure for Liverpool since joining the club in 2017. He has consistently demonstrated his goal-scoring ability, technical skill, and impact on the team’s success. His contributions have played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s triumphs, including winning the Premier League, Champions League, and Club World Cup.
As Henderson’s endorsement reaffirms, Salah’s qualities and achievements make him a standout player on the global stage. Liverpool supporters eagerly anticipate witnessing more extraordinary performances from their Egyptian King as he continues to make his mark on the world of football.
