Salah Responds To Guardiola's UCL Comments

Mohamed Salah has responded to comments made by Pep Guardiola about Liverpool's 2018/19 Uefa Champions League success, and the Egyptian forward, perhaps unsurprisingly, holds a different point of view.

Earlier this month, in an interview with The Guardian, Guardiola described winning the Champions League as luck of the draw, and that he would not trade the four domestic titles Manchester City won over the past year for Liverpool's European triumph.

The former Barcelona manager's comments stemmed from his annoyance at what he perceived as the Reds receiving more credit for their Champions League success than his side did for winning a quadruple.

"Winning the Champions League gets all the credit, but why is it higher than what we have done over 11 months?" he asked.

Liverpool star Salah has now responded to the comments made by Guardiola, and it is clear that he does not agree with the Spanish manager's sentiments.

"Honestly, I didn't know that he (Guardiola) said that, but I think if you give him a choice to choose which one, he would choose the Champions League," Salah told CNN.

"That's my opinion. I'm not talking about him, but my opinion. It's the biggest competition in football, so everyone wants to win it. Every coach, every player wants to win it, dreams of winning it. 

"So, of course, the Premier League also is something big, but still the Champions League is the biggest competition."

Salah shared the Premier League Golden Boot award last season with teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
