The former Arsenal manager likened Salah to the Barcelona talisman but believes the Egyptian attacker must become more consistent with his finishing.
Wenger also thinks Salah is “too obsessed” with scoring goals but backed him to improve with his decision making following a moment during the second half of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Burnley when Salah wasted an opportunity to pass to Sadio Mane when his team-mate was unmarked in front of goal.
“He [Salah] has similarities with Messi,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“He must find the consistency of Messi.
“I find he’s a good finisher but Messi has the complete thing, he gives the final ball as well.
