Neville explains why Mo Salah is just like Ronaldo

    Gary Neville reckons Mohamed Salah is an ‘absolute killer on the pitch’ and compared his desire to be the best to that of Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Salah began his 2020/21 Premier League in perfect fashion by scoring a hat-trick in Liverpool’s opening day 4-3 win over Leeds United.

    The Egyptian star’s exploits on Saturday took his Reds tally up to 97 goals and 41 assists in just 154 appearances. Two Golden Boot awards, the Premier League, a Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup have also come his way.

    It’s been an incredible three years at Anfield for Salah so far, with the former Chelsea man thriving alongside Sadio Mane in Jurgen Klopp’s attack.

    But Neville feels Salah’s hunger to prove himself to be above all his peers means he’ll go above Mane like his similar to his former Manchester United teammate Ronaldo did alongside Wayne Rooney.

    “I look at him as an outsider and I’m thinking that he is an absolute killer on the pitch,” the former Red Devils skipper told Sky Sports.

    “It reminds me of the twin tracking of Ronaldo and Rooney in the mid-2000s. That’s where Mane and Salah are now.

    “I think Salah will end up going above Mane, not because Mane’s not a great player, he is a great player as Rooney was, but the reason players [like Salah or Ronaldo] are different is that they have something up here [in their head] which means that they go home at night and being the best player in the world rocks their world, whereas a Rooney or a Mane, they feel that the team’s got to win, I’ve got to give my all, I’ll fight for my teammates. Salah doesn’t do that.”
