Mohamed Salah: Champions League final not me against Ronaldo
Mohamed Salah has said that the Champions League final match against Real Madrid won’t be a show off of football power between him and Madrid’s hit man, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The egypt international star revealed that the game will simply showcase collective effort of his team, Liverpool.
Salah will make his first Champions League appearance with Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine on 26 May.
Salah, with 43 goals this season, is seen as the biggest threat to Real Madrid in Kiev.
“I know all of the Arab people wish the best for me, and they are happy every time I win, but now at the moment I am only thinking about the final and to bring the trophy to Anfield,” Salah said after Liverpool’s semi-final over Roma.
“It is not going to be a final between Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo. I am playing for a great club and we have great players, so qualifying to the final came with great teamwork. I cannot do it alone – it is collective work. When we score a goal it’s because we are all doing good, when we concede it means we all need to work harder.”
