“Salah could be the best – he’s still young and he’s playing with such a great team in Liverpool,” Lauren told Omnisport.
“He could be, why not? We’ve had some great players like (Tony) Yeboah and (Andre) Ayew. Drogba did a lot.
“To be honest, I have some doubts that he can pass Drogba. He was one of the best African players in the Premier League.
“To pass that is difficult, but we’ll see. Time will tell us, but at the moment I’m sticking with Drogba. I think he’s one of the best African players to have played in the Premier League.”
