Ronaldo: Salah Mustn't Be Compared To Me

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo: Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Mustn't Be Compared To Me

By Kurt Buckerfield - May 24, 2018 05:45 PM @KurtLaduma

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.

France's World Cup Snubbed XI

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." 

Ronaldo Laughs Off Neymar Rumours

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.

Who do you think will win the UCL final on Saturday? Let us know in the comments section below.

You do not want to be compared to anyone else because you are from another planet you stay alone. You are good there our Jesus. You said come Saturday that is pretty good and everyone is waiting for the day. I wish the whistle man forget the yellow and red cards at. Let the whistle not take side

The difference is that others are team players and the other one is being spoonfed.

Who compared you to Salah does not know football. You are fast for nothing compared to Salah who has the eye for goal
