Paul Lambert has said that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo still deserve to be regarded as the best two players in the world.

The duo has enjoyed another outstanding campaign, but the form of Mohamed Salah has led to the Egyptian international putting himself into the mix for the Ballon d’Or.

However, despite the Liverpool winger netting 43 goals in all competitions this season, Lambert says that the PFA Player of the Year winner still has work to do in order to match Messi and Ronaldo.

The Stoke City boss is quoted by PA as saying: “The season he’s had has been phenomenal but I still think the best players on the planet are Ronaldo and Messi.

“The reason I say that is because they have done it season after season, but I don’t think anybody could have predicted the season Salah has had.”

When asked about the Ballon d’Or, the 48-year-old added: “He must be in the running, but again, he’s in an era with those two in front of him, so it’s incredibly tough.”

Salah possibly will feature when Stoke faces Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
