Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has rejected the notion that their Champions League final clash with Real Madrid will be a personal contest between himself and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both players are candidates for this season’s Ballon d’Or, but the Egyptian international has dismissed claims that their individual battle will overshadow the game.
“It is not going to be a final between Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo, I am playing for a great club, and we have great players,” The Mirror quotes Salah as saying.
“So qualifying to the final came with great teamwork, that I cannot do it alone.” Salah said.
“I know all of the Arab people wish the best for me in the Ballon d’Or, and they are happy every time I win, but now at the moment I am only thinking about the final and to bring the trophy to Anfield.”
The Champions League final takes place in Kiev on May 26.
