Former Tottenham and Everton winger said that it is impossible to compare Liverpool’s with Tottenham’s as he believes the Egyptian star is more skilful.

The 25-year-old, who was announced PFA Player of the Year, scored 31 Premier League goals so far this season and is close to ending Harry Kane’s Golden Boot domination leading the race with four goals.

“The main problem with Harry Kane is, when he is not on the goal sheet, his impact on the game with his team is not as relevant as what it was before,” Ginola told talkSPORT. “If he doesn’t score, he doesn’t have the same impact upon the team.”

Salah was recently announced Footballer of the Year by Football Writers’ Association edging out Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne with a slight advantage in the votes for the accolade, with the two players gaining more than 90 percent of the votes by the FWA members, while Harry Kane came third behind them.

“You can’t put Harry Kane on the same level… it’s impossible! Because when it comes to talking about skills, skills are something you learn,” he added. “The talent of scoring goals and the talent to be able to do things with the football are different.”

The Egyptian international’s phenomenal form earned him praise from a number of experts and former footballers, some arguing that he should be competing with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the Ballon d’Or.

“If you take Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho they were the most skilful players around – they could do things with the football other professional players could only dream about.

“Harry Kane is not capable of doing things like Messi and Ronaldo do with a football, in terms of his quick feet. Salah can do things Harry can’t.”
