Salah 15 years behind Cristiano Ronaldo: Klopp

Football News: The German manager believes it will take Salah long way to go if he wants to match Cristiano Ronaldo’s achievements.

Salah is 15 years behind than CR7.

Klopp believes that it will take Salah 15 years of time to match the level of five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo.

On his maiden season with the Reds, the Egyptian international has enjoyed a stunning season with them, this term he has scored a record 32 goals in his 44 appearances in all competitions.

Because of his wonderful performance this season he won many accolades like the Golden Boot, PFA player of the year award and now he and his team is preparing them for the final showdown which will take place on May 26 at Keiv.

The Liverpool manager express that Salah has to go long mile if he wishes to match the level of Three Premier league titles, four Champions league titles, Two La Liga champions and others.

Klopp voiced: "Mo had a fantastic season, but Cristiano has played 15 seasons like this,"

"He has scored something like 47,000 goals – crazy numbers.

"Why should we compare? At the time of Pele nobody compared Pele to other players and asked, 'Is he as good as him?' Now we have Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, who have dominated football for a few years.

"Messi and Ronaldo are, in the final moment, very often in the right position to score a goal – and that's the most difficult thing to do in the world.

"That's why they are where they are. The Ballon d’Or is always between them. It’s deserved. When they stop playing football we’ll miss them, 100 per cent. I don't have to make these kind of stories about Salah and Ronaldo.

"It's not about having the better individual. Usually, it's about playing the better football – and, for that, you need all the other players as well."
