​Carragher: Champions League win would make Salah instant Liverpool legend

Jamie Carragher believes that Mohamed Salah will become a Liverpool legend if the club go on to win the Champions League this season.

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."
