Bayern Munich chief Rumminegge lauds Liverpool ace Salah as 'Messi of Africa'

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has been lauded as the 'Messi of Africa' by Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rumminegge.

The Egyptian has attracted plenty of admirers during four seasons with Liverpool, in which he has scored 116 goals from 184 appearances.

And Rumminegge has compared the 28-year-old to Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

"In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he got the skills to play in the best teams in the world," Rumminegge told ON Time Sports, as per Kingfut.

"What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid."
