John Bishop called Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah a “God” when asked to describe him in one word.

The Liverpudlian comedian was playing a game of ‘Word Association’ in order to promote his new show on Amazon, ‘Back of the Net’, and was asked for a one-word verdict on Salah.

Bishop notably exhaled before answering, then raised his arms up in order to dub Salah a “God.”

“God,” said Bishop while raising his arms, in a clip uploaded to Amazon Prime Video Sport’s Twitter account.

OPINION

Given that legendary Liverpool forward Robbie Fowler was previously christened ‘God’ by the Kop, as per the Reds’ official website, it says so much that the word ‘God’ is the first word to come to Bishop’s mind when thinking about Salah. Fowler achieved cult status at Liverpool by scoring 183 goals in 369 appearances for the Reds, and the comedian clearly thinks Salah is capable of being as prolific for the famous club. This is no surprise as Salah has already hit the ground running at Anfield in his first two seasons with the Reds.  The 27-year-old has scored 71 goals, while assisting 29, in the 104 appearances he has already made for the Reds. Salah has won the Premier League Golden Boot in both his seasons at the Reds so far and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he picked up that personal accolade again this season.  The Eqyptian got his 2019/20 season off to a flying start against Norwich City as not only did he score in the 4-1 victory on Friday, but he also got himself an assist.
