Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is better than Barcelona captain Lionel Messi and Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo, on-loan PAOK midfielder Amr Warda has claimed.
Salah’s string of fine performances and goal-scoring feats at Anfield have seen him rise in the ranking of elite players across the world.
The two-time African Player of the Year came third in the Goal 50 awards for 2019 ahead of Ronaldo, with Virgil van Dijk and Lionel Messi settling for the first and second places, respectively.
Warda admitted difficulty in picking the best between Messi and Ronaldo, but he preferred his Egyptian teammate because of their friendship.
“It is not possible to determine who is the best between Messi and Ronaldo, because Cristiano is a model for hard work, while Lionel is an ideal for talents,” Warda said, per Afrique Sports.
“Salah is better than Messi and Ronaldo, not because he is the best, but he is a very dear friend, so I will support him in this comparison.”
