Real Madrid vs Liverpool

Ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, Zinedine Zidane was asked to choose between Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian forward has had a sensational debut campaign for Liverpool this season and has scored 44 goals in all competitions, as well collecting five accolades for his displays.

Salah’s rise to stardom in the football world has seen him being compared amongst even Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who both have a combined total of 10 Ballon d’Ors and 1,125 goals between them.

But Zidane is remaining loyal to his star man: “No, I have Cristiano and I talk about my players.”

However, the Real boss is aware of the danger that Liverpool could potentially provide in Saturday’s final at Kiev.

“They [Liverpool] have had a great season, in the Champions League and in the [Premier] league. They can cause us problems, we know that. We are not going to be surprised. Nor them with us. We know each other very well,” said Zidane, according to AS.

This weekend’s encounter will be Zidane’s third consecutive Champions League final after being appointed the Real boss in January 2016.
