Former Egypt star Mohamed Zidan claims Jurgen Klopp told him that he was a 100 times better than Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
Zidan was once the face of Egyptian football, having helped the nation claim two Africa Cup of Nations titles in 2008 and 2010.
The former attacker also starred with Borussia Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp, where he made 66 appearances and bagged 13 goals.
The Egyptian claims Klopp told him he was better than Salah, but his professionalism was not on the same level as the two-time African Player of the Year.
“Klopp told me that I was better than Salah 100 hundred times but I needed to be more professional," Zidan told ON Sport.
“Klopp said to me that I have a great talent and skills but I need to concentrate more. If I did this I could be one of the best players in the world".
“I had to be more dedicated to training and be more professional to reach Salah’s level in the past.
“Salah is more professional than me and more dedicated to football like Ronaldo and Messi.”
