CRISTIANO RONALDO and Lionel Messi are ‘not as good’ as ‘unstoppable’ Mo Salah.
That’s according to Dean Saunders, who believes the Liverpool star is the best forward in world football these days.

Salah, 29, already has eight goals in as many games this season.
And his strike in Saturday’s 3-3 draw at Brentford saw him take his tally to 100 Premier League goals for Liverpool.
Meanwhile, 36-year-old Ronaldo has four goals in four games after returning to Manchester United over the summer.
And new Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi, 34, only scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday night’s 2-0 win against Man City – his fourth appearance for PSG.
Salah could now be on course to surpass his best-ever season tally of 44 strikes.
And ex-Reds ace Saunders reckons Ronaldo and Messi are now trailing in the Egyptian’s wake.

Saunders told TalkSPORT: “Right now, as we speak, who is better than him?
“Eight goals in eight games from the right wing, he’s not playing down the middle.
“He just looks unstoppable. There’s Messi and Ronaldo, who are on their own.
“But right now they’re not as good as Salah. [Ronaldo or Salah?] Right now, Salah.

“It’s easy to say Ronaldo, but right now Salah looks like he’s going to score every week.”
Salah still has some way to go before matching Ronaldo and Messi’s career goals though, despite sitting on 210 himself.
Ronaldo has scored 678 goals during his illustrious career, with Messi just ahead on 684.
