Karius doesn’t think Salah is as good as Ronaldo

Karius doesn’t think Salah is as good as Ronaldo

"From the Premier League?".

What's more is the Spaniard believes Salah must continue producing insane numbers over the next few years to justify being compared to Ronaldo and Messi, which is absolutely true.

Salah will be going directly against Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who is also a favorite to win the Golden Shoe, so this match will determine both team and possibly personal records for both players. "They're in another orbit".

"There are players who come and then drop off and then others who are there to stay". The period of the game in which Ronaldo has scored the most goals is between 76 and 85 minutes. Ronaldo will arrive to Kiev more rested than the Liverpool striker.

Salah never settled and was eventually discarded by the west London club after only 13 appearances under Jose Mourinho.

Yet again, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah runs away with the title of fastest-speed registered this season, hitting a rapid 33.8kph. So potent is the 33-year-old Ronaldo, he only required 43 games.

Bradley, who still talks to Salah regularly, is happy to see his one-time player succeed on the biggest stage.

But it is the Champions League that really brings out the best in him.

After finishing second in their group behind Tottenham, Real Madrid put Paris Saint-Germain to the sword in the Round of 16 and continued to face giants of Europe in their route to Kiev.

"When you're at this club you can not take your foot off the gas, least of all in this competition", Ronaldo said. They've won the Champions League three times in the past four years, so they have a lot of experience.

"To reach a final is not easy", Zidane reminded his critics.

A debate recently emerged on whether Salah should fast on the day of the finale, with Islamic clerics such as Yasser Burhami there is not a single Quran verse that supports footballers breaking their fast for work reasons, as football does not count as "hard labour". I think he now feels, and rightly so, that it is a case of him versus Ronaldo.

'It was more unfortunate the way he fell'.
