Pep Guardiola recently compared Liverpool’s Champions League win to a casino spin and stated he’d prefer to win the Premier League, given the choice.
Mo Salah reckons he’s chatting nonsense, as we do!
“Honestly, I didn’t know that he (Guardiola) said that, but I think if you give him a choice to choose which one, he would choose the Champions League,” Salah told CNN.
“That’s my opinion. I’m not talking about him, but my opinion. It’s the biggest competition in football, so everyone wants to win it.
“Every coach, every player wants to win it, dreams of winning it. So of course the Premier League also is something big, but still the Champions League is the biggest competition.”
That’s pretty emphatic, isn’t it?!
Salah scored in Madrid’s Final against Spurs, who knocked Manchester City out in the quarterfinals.
Liverpool defeated City at the same stage in 2018, so despite Pep’s domestic success, which although impressive, has been made possible thanks to a mind-bogglingly strong squad created by the most money ever spent on footballers in history, but he simply hasn’t done it in Europe without Lionel Messi.
The same thing happened at Bayern Munich, before he moved to England, too.
This term, Liverpool hope to be fighting tooth and nail with City once again. Their 5-0 opening day win v West Ham suggests to us they’re going to be nigh-on perfect – so we have to be nothing but as well.
