"If Cristiano scores or Messi scores that goal they say it is world class, Mo scores that goal because he is world class. He is one of the best players in the world, that's how it is", Klopp told the British media after the match.
"The first touch, the first challenge he wins, then putting it on his right foot and finishing the situation was absolutely exceptional", he added.
"This club never forgets these things so people will talk about this goal for a long time and in 50 or 60 years' time they will remember this goal", Klopp concluded.
Meanwhile, football fans were also in awe of Salah's goal, with a few referring to Salah's performance as "PlayStation football". Others labelled him the "Egyptian King", while some supporters insisted that Salah "deserves the Ballon d'Or" for his spectacular play.
It was midfielder Kevin De Bruyne who delivered the equaliser for City in the 81st minute, shattering Liverpool's hopes of finishing the match as winners.
