Former Real Madrid striker Ronaldo Nazario has admitted he ‘loves’ Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and has compared him to Lionel Messi.
The Egyptian faces up against his Ronaldo’s old side in Saturday’s Champions League final, having scored 44 goals in his 51 games for the Merseyside club in his debut season.
“I love Salah, he plays like Lionel Messi,” Ronaldo told Cadena Cope.
“The Champions League final? Real Madrid are the favourites, they have the experience, knowhow and quality.
“Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo would be compatible, they could play in the same team, but when a player wants to leave, a club cannot stop it.”
