The laurels just keep coming for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who has a major role to play in taking The Reds to the Champions League final.
The summit showdown will be held at the Olympiskiy stadium in Kiev, Ukraine, against Spanish giants Real Madrid on May 27.
The latest admirer of Salah is Brazilian legend, Ronaldo. Comparing him to Lionel Messi, he says, "Salah, I love him. He is an incredible player with a tremendous quality. He looks like Messi. I recently read him saying that I had been his inspiration and I was excited."

Salah was transferred from Roma to Liverpool last summer, and since then, he has scored 44 goals in all competitions.
Liverpool will be looking to win their first Champions League title since 2005. But Ronaldo thinks The Whites, who are aiming for their third European Cup success on the trot, will have the edge over Jurgen Klopp’s men.
"My result is 3-2 for Madrid. If they win the final it will be an unprecedented event in their history. I am very optimistic,” he says.
