Mohamed Salah paid special tribute to Jordan Henderson and picked the midfielder as Liverpool’s best player.

The Reds are still basking in the glow of their Premier League title triumph and there has been much debate about who is Liverpool’s leading star.

Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Salah himself come up often in those discussions, but the Egyptian forward gave the nod to his captain.

‘All of us deserve to be the best player,’ he told beIN SPORTS.

‘If you ask ten people about Van Dijk, nine will say he deserves it for sure. If you ask ten people about Trent, nine will say definitely.

‘When you ask ten people about Salah and any other, they’ll say the same, but if I have to pick, I’ll choose Henderson our captain.

‘He was criticised a lot, and people wanted him out of Liverpool, but he fought back and proved to everyone that he deserves to be our captain, plus he was helping everyone even the young players.’
