Mohamed Salah – one of five players Ronaldo most enjoys watching
Brazilian legend Ronaldo has listed five players he enjoys watching the most. He included Salah but had no room for the Portuguese icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Egyptian is currently in the final stages of his preparations with his side Liverpool to take on Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid on the 1st of June, what will be the Reds second Champions League final in a successive manner.
And Ex-Real Madrid and Barcelona striker and current Real Valladolid President Ronaldo has revealed that Salah is one of five players he enjoys watching the most.
During an interview with Spanish news outlet AS, the Phenomenon named Lionel Messi as the number one player he likes watching, however, Cristiano Ronaldo was not second on Brazilian Ronaldo’s list. In fact, he wasn’t anywhere on the list.
“Messi, of course, he is number one, it is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar,” R9 replied when asked about the players he enjoys watching.
The 42-year-old also picked Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, who remains subject to intense transfer speculation, fellow compatriot Neymar, as well as Paris Saint-Germain phenom Kylian Mbappe.
“I also like [Mohamed] Salah, [Eden] Hazard, Neymar, that I love watching him play, of course, [Kylian] Mbappe,” he added.
The PSG wonderkid has often been compared to Ronaldo, however, the 2002 World Cup winner doesn’t like comparing two players from different generations.
“It says a lot of people who look like me, he has a lot of speed, he finishes well, he has great movements, he hits excellent with both legs, he has an incredible stride,” Ronaldo admitted.
“We have similar things, but I never liked comparisons, especially between players of different generations, because the situations are different,” he added.
