'Salah Has A Lot More To Do To Catch CR7 & Messi!'

'Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah Has A Lot More To Do To Catch Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi!'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 30, 2018 05:00 PM @KurtLaduma

The brilliance of Mohamed Salah this season has many comparing the Egyptian to superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but a former Premier League player has suggested the Liverpool man still has some way to go until he reaches that status.

PFA Player Of The Year Revealed

The 25-year-old scored an impressive brace against Roma in the first leg of Liverpool’s semi-final clash in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday and is now being talked about among the best players in world football.

Ex-Manchester United skipper Roy Keane, who played with Ronaldo during the pair's time at Old Trafford, feels Salah needs trophies to be considered on the same level as Messi and the Portuguese forward.

"I always look at the strikers playing well and he has been compared to Ronaldo and Messi," he told ITV Sport.

"I think you still have to end up with one or two trophies with your club at the end of the season.

"Part of my makeup when I played with players was if my strikers are scoring 25-30 goals like Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, we have to win trophies.

"Liverpool haven't done that yet. If they end up winning the Champions League and he scores in the final, then start giving out the prizes.

"He still has to do a bit more for me and that is getting his hands on a trophy at club level."

Salah Breaks African UCL Record

Salah has hit the back of the net 43 times in 47 matches this season for Liverpool, while he has set up a further 15 strikes.

What more do you think Salah has to do to be considered on the same level as Messi and Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section below.

I smell jealousy here from Keane. Harry Kane was applauded last season but trophy does he have. Plz respect the cream of Africa. Mo Sallah is way ahead of Messi n CR7 this season and he sjld get tge Ballon D'or wheteher my Liverpool wins CL or not

Dis guy puts me in an awkward position, coz I wish him and Klopp to win it, yet I wish the same for Bayern's coach. Same wishes for Zidane and Madrid.
