As a result, in a recent interview with, he took to listing a number of players he feels are among the finest in England. And Sissoko is one of them.

“We have great players in English football, it’s hard to select one as the outright best,” he said. “That’s why it’s the most popular league with many quality teams. We can talk about the goalscorers Salah and Harry Kane.

“We also have Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan in Manchester City, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United, Moussa Sissoko and Mousa Dembele at Tottenham, Willian and Eden Hazard at Chelsea, Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.

“Not to mention Mane, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren and the many other good players we have here at Liverpool. It is a league with great stars. Virtually everyone I mentioned will be at the World Cup. The level is very high.”
