Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp feels Mo Salah, like PSG great Leo Messi, is capable of playing well into his 30s.

The 54-year-old stated the Egyptian "has all the things you need" to be able to play for longer in his pre-match news conference ahead of the Reds' Champions League encounter with AC Milan.

“[I’ve] never spoke to him about how long he wants to play, but he has all the things you need to do that,” Klopp said of Salah.

“Physically, Mo is more the type of Leo Messi. Similar height, similar weight probably, so all these guys needed to be lucky with injuries.

“They’ve not been without injuries, but they’ve always come back without any further harm – that’s very important.

“Mo has all the things. I’m pretty sure he wants to be part of the game as long as he can and there is no reason why he shouldn’t be able to do that.

“It’s about attitude, obviously. Because I’m pretty sure some players finish their careers because they just couldn’t be that motivated anymore. I can’t see that with Mo.”
