Cristiano Ronaldo's Response To Reporter When She Compares Him To Mo Salah Is Perfect
Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Mohamed Salah is nearly upon us, but who will come out on top in Kiev?
Ahead of the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool on Saturday night, the five-time Balon d'Or winner has spoken to the media about a man who could realistically challenge him for the prestigious individual trophy later this year.
In an interview with BT Sport, the reporter didn't hold back and asked Ronaldo if he sees any similarities between himself and the Egyptian King.
I think it's fair to say that the Real Madrid forward doesn't agree with those who compare him to any player, never mind Salah.
it's clear that the Real Madrid man appreciates how good of a season Mohamed Salah has had at Liverpool, but realises that the pair are completely different in terms of playing style.
"He is completely different. He plays with the left, I play with the right. I'm tall he's a little bit shorter, I play with the head. We are completely different." he said.
"People want to compare me with other players but I'm different from everyone. Salah is different but I have to say he has had a fantastic Champions League a fantastic league season, but Saturday, let's see."
"So @Cristiano, any similarities with you and @MoSalah?"

Mohamed Salah's sensational 43-goal season has seen him draw parallels with five-time Ballon d'Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi but 'The Egyptian King' is not a fan of the comparisons, himself.
The 25-year old shares the common view that it's too early to start throwing him in the mix with world football's two elite players.
"I don't want to say I am happy with these kind of comparisons," Salah said in an interview with Egyptian TV channel ONE, as per the Liverpool Echo.
"Each of them has been at the top level for 10 or 11 years. Their performance level is stable.
"I need to maintain my performance levels high for many seasons. I hope I can do that. They are great players and hopefully I become happy with these comparisons."
Who will come out on top this Saturday? Real Madrid or Liverpool? Cristiano Ronaldo or Mohamed Salah?
