Champions League

Jurgen Klopp praises Cristiano Ronaldo and dismisses comparisons with Salah

Real Madrid and Liverpool have their eyes set on European Glory as the two sides prepare to meet next weekend for the Champions League Final. Both sides have suffered during their domestic campaigns and their season’s outcome depends on this all to play for Champions League Finale in what promises to be an epic clash between the European heavyweights.

Zidane’s men ended their last La Liga with a 2-2 draw away to Villarreal and now all their focus is set on the Champions League Final.

Ahead of the Champions League Final, Liverpool Manager talked about the high profile individual clash between Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo. Klopp dismissed Salah’s comparisons with Ronaldo praising Ronaldo’s consistency at the top level.

“Salah has played a fantastic season but Cristiano has played 15 seasons like this. He has scored something like 47,000 goals. He has crazy numbers.”

“Why should we compare? When Pele played, nobody compared Pele to other players and asked ‘is he as good as him?’” said Klopp as quoted by UK Website Dailymail.

Klopp also praised Messi and Ronaldo’s dominance at the top level as the duo have dominated the Football World for over a decade.

“Messi and Ronaldo are often in the right position to score and it’s the most difficult thing in the World. That’s why they are where they are.”

“The Ballon d’Or is always between these two and its well deserved. We will miss them when they stop playing football,” concluded Klopp as reported by Dailymail.

All eyes are now set on the Champions League Final on May 26, 2018. If Liverpool manages to win UCL, Salah might also end up the dominance of Messi and Ronaldo on the top.
