Liverpool are currently the favourites to be the opponents of Real Madrid in the final of Europe's Premier club competition. They have a 5-2 advantage over Roma heading into their semi-final second leg against the Italian's at the Stadio Olimpico tonight.
Carragher said: "When we had Suarez and Torres, we thought they were as good as anyone around," he admits. "But when they eventually left the club, they only left with 'he was a great player'. They didn't actually take the team to something.
"Salah could take the team to a European Cup, and if he does that he's a Liverpool legend. When you win a big trophy, everyone is a hero. But there are always a couple of players who you know have dragged you to it. Salah would be a legend inside one season, and right up there with some of the greats in the club's history."
