On the other side, Liverpool have reached their first Champions League final in 11 years, thanks to Mohamed Salah’s 11 goals in the competition.

And despite the Egyptian’s unbelievable performances, Del Bosque claims that Mohamed Salah wouldn’t be a good fit at Real Madrid, adding that no Liverpool player would live up to the Spanish giants’ standards.

“Real Madrid have a great squad — they are the best club in Europe at the moment and must show that on Saturday,” Del Bosque told local radio show “El Partidazo”.

“I don’t see even one Liverpool player who would improve Real Madrid, not even Salah,” he added.

The 67-year-old also went on to predict a 4-1 scoreline in Saturday’s Champions League final in Kiev, with Real Madrid lifting the Cup.

Del Bosque was part of the Real Madrid team that lost to Liverpool in the European Cup final in 1981, however, he did lead them to two Champions League titles as a manager in 2000 and 2002.

The manager’s comments come after Real Madrid’s defender Marcelo had stated that Liverpool’s danger not only lies within Salah, but winger Sadio Mane and striker Robert Firmino as well.

The encounter will be Salah’s first European final, but won’t be his first game against Real Madrid, as the Egyptian faced them in the Champions League round of 16 during his time at Roma.

Salah will be hoping to become the only second Arab to lift the Champions League title after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer, who won it with FC Porto against Bayern Munich in 1987.

    Del Bosque is VERY “Real Madrid Biased” because there is no way anyone who knows football will say they will take Benzema over Salah! That is pure hypocrisy!

    Yup there goes those salah rumors. He needs more time to grow. I can potentially see him in Barcelona however I hope he focuses more on this coming World Cup. A great player just isn’t great himself but can also make the rest of the team look outstanding. Salah, Egypt needs you to showcase your greatness. I guarantee you do this, you belong to any team any where.
