Arsene Wenger likens Mo Salah's consistency to Messi – but highlights a flaw

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is similar to Lionel Messi, but lacks a certain aspect of his game.

Wenger, speaking to beIN SPORTS, revealed how the Egyptian is so close, yet so far from one of football's all-time greats.

“He has similarities to Messi, after he finds the consistency of Messi," Wenger said.

"I find him as a good finisher, but Messi has the complete thing and gives the final ball as well. Salah is a bit obsessed by finishing."

Despite highlighting Salah's flaw, Le Professeur insisted that he is a big fan and declared simply: "I like him very much."
