Ronaldo: Salah Mustn't Be Compared To Me
Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo: Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Mustn't Be Compared To Me
Five-time Ballon d'Or winner and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has explained why he thinks African winger Mohamed Salah should not be compared to him.
Los Blancos will take on the Reds in the UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv, Ukraine, on Saturday and plenty of talk in the build-up to the game has been about which superstar will outperform the other: Ronaldo or Salah.
The Egyptian has been compared to Lionel Messi as well as Ronaldo, who has now insisted that he and the 25-year-old are totally different footballers.
"We are completely different," the Portugal talisman told Metro.
"People want to compare me with other players, but I'm different from everyone.
"He is completely different. He plays with the left, I play with the right. I'm tall, he's a little bit shorter, I play with the head.
"Salah is different, but I have to say he has had a fantastic Champions League, a fantastic league season, but Saturday... let's see."
While Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 games for Liverpool this season, Ronaldo has hit the back of the net 44 times in just 43 games for Los Blancos.
