Real Madrid captain has admitted that Liverpool hitman is a ‘top player’, but simultaneously stated he is still a long off the level of and .

Salah has enjoyed a superb campaign this season on individual scale, as he finished the season as the English Premier League top goalscorer with record 32 goals and was named the league’s Player of the Year.

The Egypt international also had a big hand in Liverpool’s path towards the Champions League final for the first time since 2007 after he scored 10 goals, being the joint-second top scorer with teammate Roberto Firmino.

Football legends like Maradona and Ronaldo Nazario backed Salah to be able to rival the two dominant players Ronaldo and Messi, but Ramos feels the duo are on a totally whole level.

“Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can’t do. They’re in another orbit. There are players who are in fashion, those who come and go and others who stay around,” Ramos said in a press conference.

“Salah is a top player, that’s clear. He’s shown that this year and he’s got a great chance to show that over the next few years as Ronaldo and Messi have done – but the day after tomorrow!”

Salah and Ronaldo will go head-to-head on Saturday night in the Champions League final in Kiev between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

    If Salah doesn’t catch any major injuries I can see him win several back-to-back Ballons d’Or. Probably there’ll be a blockbuster movie made about him. One of its main themes being how Salah will have been constantly underrated, from his junior years in Egypt until his first couple of Ballons d’Or. Often deliberately underrated, not wanting to accept the fact that an Egyptian guy called Mohamed is the best player in the world. By the time of the film, however, people will consider him one of the great all-time legends alongside Pelé, Maradona and Messi. Very probably he’ll even set a record for the numbers of Ballons d’Or won. You’ve read it here, first.

    That is decriminalization. Salah is much better. Compare LM & R when they are at the same age.

    Ramos has proved tonight that he is a handicapped player not able to stop Salah without injuring him.
    Tonight is a shameful night for Ramos, he has lost a lot, especially self-respect.
    Shame on you Ramos.
