The Egyptian international netted his 100th goal in the Premier League during the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday.
Despite Salah often being the main scorer for Liverpool over the past few years, Carragher believes he is slightly underrated by fans and pundits alike.
“He is massively important and sometimes I feel sorry for Mo Salah because I think he goes under the radar in terms of Liverpool,” Carragher said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
“When people talk about Liverpool winning the league, they always go back to Liverpool signing Alisson and Virgil Van Dijk. Mo Salah came in six months before [Van Dijk]. It is the three of them but everyone mentions that it was the goalkeeper and the centre-back that took Liverpool to this next level. Mo Salah is a huge part of that.”
“We should not forget as well that Salah plays from the right. Yes, he is a wide forward but he does not play through the centre. He is Johnny on the spot. If he goes a few games without a goal you just think there is one coming because it is Mo Salah. That is just how it is.”
