Mohamed Salah recently claimed he is the best player in his position ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming FA Cup and Champions League finals. The Egypt international has played a crucial role in the Reds’ pursuit of the quadruple this season. With the season reaching its most decisive phase, Salah has made sure to remind everyone of his incredible quality.
“If you compare me with any player in my position, not only in my team but in the world, you will find that I am the best,” Salah told beIN SPORTS.
“I always focus on my work and do my best and my numbers are the best proof of my words. I like to always create a new challenge for me, to work in a different way and to make a difference and that is my duty,” added the Liverpool forward.
“We are well prepared”- Mohamed Salah on Champions League 2021-22 Final against Real Madrid
The Champions League final will be a rematch of the 2017-18 final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in which Los Blancos defeated the Reds 3-1 with some calamitous goalkeeping from Loris Karius and the individual brilliance of Gareth Bale who scored with a Bicycle kick goal in the final.
On the rematch with Madrid who famously beat him in the 2018 Champions League final when sustained an early injury, he added: “I remember the last final against Real Madrid as if it was yesterday. We are well prepared and hopefully, we can take our revenge in the next final.”

While talking about his departure from Chelsea, Salah added: “Before 2018, some said that I could not do anything after leaving Chelsea, but I continued and did great things, I think in a positive way and try to be on the right path.”
The 29-year-old knows that collective success with Liverpool is the top priority, and is determined to make it happen. “Hopefully we can get the three,” he said. “If not, then at least the Premier League and the Champions League. It’s a hunger. I want to win them two, three, four times. Why not? You can dream whatever you want to dream, and you can achieve whatever you want to achieve.”
