Ghana midfielder praised but said that the Egyptian winger is not at the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The Egypt international has been repeatedly compared to La Liga legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi following his impressive performances with Liverpool.

The 25-year-old secured the Premier League Golden Boot for the 2017/18 season after scoring 32 goals in 36 appearances, setting a new Premier League record for the highest number of goals by one player in a single 38-game campaign.

He also managed to land the PFA Player of the Year award and the Football Writers’ Player of the Year, as well as winning Liverpool’s Player of the Year award.

“Mohamed Salah has performed creditably well in the year under review but I don’t think he has reached the level of [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo,” Asamoah told Atinka FM.

“We’re all proud of him and I’m not really surprised with how he has performed this season because he has previously exhibited such potentials [only that the goals have been many thanks before],” the 29-year-old Juventus midfielder added.

      Your opinion is that he is better than Messi, others may agree with you or think that Messi is ok, that doesn’t mean they are insulting Salah or hate him or calling him a bad player. Actually, it is an honour to have our own player being compared with Messi.

      If Asamoah is not a good critic then neither are you. He is a professional football who played in the World Cup. What have you done? Point is he has his opinion you have yours, stop being a child. Attack the opinion not the person.

        I agree with you Mohamad. And as Asamoah said he is proud of Salah as an African player. And he doesnt say something bad about Salah at all and he is not surprised of Salahs performances because he already knows his potentials from Italy.
