'African Superstar Is Better Than Messi & Ronaldo'

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are often seen as the best players in the game today, but it has now been claimed that an African superstar is better than the duo.

The two rivals have dominated the Ballon d'Or and other individual awards over the past 12 years, with the debate over who the better player is between them splitting football fans and experts worldwide.

However, Egypt international Amr Warda, who was in hot water during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after allegedly sexually harassing women online, has now insisted his national teammate Mohamed Salah is superior to Messi and Ronaldo.

"It's impossible to say who's the better player between Messi and Ronaldo, because Ronaldo is an example of a hard worker while Messi is more naturally talented," Warda told Greek news outlet Forza.

"Salah, for me, is better than Messi or Ronaldo, not because he's the best, but because he's a really good friend of mine so I'll always take his side when comparing him to other players."

Warda also discussed his own future after his club PAOK loaned him out this season following his off-pitch controversy during AFCON 2019.

"I can't wait to return to PAOK and win the domestic double (league and cup) and qualify for the UEFA Champions League," he added.

"I made the most out of my loan spell at Larissa this season, where I scored seven goals and gave six assists, as we now sit eighth on the league table.

"I therefore consider it a successful experience and I always try to improve my performances, and I promise I will give it all I got if I return to PAOK."
