Cristiano Ronaldo: We need to respect Mohamed Salah
12-time winners Real Madrid will eye their third consecutive title when they face Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, May 26 in Kiev.
One of the key battles in this game will be between Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah, who have scored 44 goals each this season [only Lionel Messi scored more].
And the Portuguese legend has spoken once again about Mohamed Salah as part of Liverpool’s attacking trio with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, saying the trio had a great season.
“Salah has had a great season, just like Mane and Firmino. People talk about Salah but all three have at least ten goals in the Champions League so they’re very dangerous players,” Ronaldo told beIN SPORTS.
“Salah has had a really brilliant season and he’s playing at a very high level. We need to respect him,” he concluded.
Cristiano will be looking to win his fifth Champions League title, while Salah will hoping to become the only second Arab to lift the title after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer.
