first_imgMohamed Salah is the equal of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric, claims Egypt coach Javier AguirreThe 26-year-old had an incredible debut season at Liverpool and received many plaudits and accolades for his efforts.However, Salah was beaten to the UEFA Men’s Best Player of the Year award by Modric with Ronaldo finishing second.Now, after missing out on Europe’s top individual prize, Salah has once more been pitted against the duo for the world football’s most prestigious personal honour in FIFA’s The Best award.“I think that the three players are equal, none of them is above the other, but there can be only one winner. Hopefully, it’ll be Salah,” Aguirre told EFE.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Salah has only managed two goals in his first five games of the new Premier League season.But Aguirre feels that even the most prolific goalscorers like Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have their dry streaks.“This is just the beginning. The scorers go through streaks, suddenly they score three goals in one match.“Scorers like Salah, Ronaldo or (Lionel) Messi can be three or four games without a netting goal, and then they let go.”Salah will likely line-up for Liverpool in this evening’s Champions League opener at home to Paris Saint-Germain.last_img
