Why Should We Compare Ronaldo With Salah?_ Klopp

Why Should We Compare Ronaldo With Salah?_ Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to draw comparisons between his team's star forward Mohamed Salah and Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of their trip to Old Trafford on Sunday. Klopp was speaking ahead of his team's trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Klopp has stated that he has never considered comparing the abilities of the two forwards, stating that both players are excellent in their own right.

Why should we compare Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Salah is something I'd never thought about before. Obviously, both guys are world-class athletes, so that is the way things stand. However, I would say that Mo's left foot is marginally better than mine, if not significantly better.

Perhaps Cristiano is a little better in the air, and his right foot is probably a little better as well. However, in terms of speed, they are both really quick and keen to score goals – so perhaps that is the case. Klopp told the Liverpool website, "But I've never really given it much thought and I'm not really interested in it, so please forgive me."

Klopp stated that because both sides played in the middle of the week, they would be on an equal footing going into Sunday's game.

Liverpool come into the encounter having defeated Atletico Madrid 3-2 in a Uefa Champions League match, but Manchester United defeated Atalanta by a similar score in a Premier League match.

"Undoubtedly, we had a lot of problems at Atletico, and one of them was the opponent, but it was a major difficulty, and we witnessed it." They [Atletico Madrid] had the previous weekend off. Yes, they played with ten players, but they had a completely different level of enthusiasm than we did in that game, which was understandable. So, we fought our way through it, and that's the way it was. But we made it through, which is a fantastic thing, and now we've rested for the last two days, and now we'll begin truly preparing for the game. The way it should be is exactly as it should be. "No, there will be no concern because of the intensity of the last game, at least for us," he stated.

Liverpool will be trying to keep their unbeaten streak alive going into the Premier League fixture on Sunday against Southampton.

Liverpool are in second place on the log table with 18 points after eight games, one point behind leaders Chelsea, who have 19 points from the same number of games.

United are in an unexpected position in the standings, sitting in sixth place with 14 points after eight games.
