He has won back to back Premier League titles with Man City but it is widely thought that the Catalan will be truly judged on whether he can deliver that elusive European title.
Salah’s Liverpool are the antithesis of Man City, with consistent European success but no Premier League title. But the Egyptian striker believes the Champions League is the one they all want to win.
“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.”
Salah scored Liverpool’s opening goal in their 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid.
“Honestly, it was great, ” Salah said of his team’s Champions League success. “It’s a dream for everyone, the city, the players, to win a Champions League is something so great and something very big.
“So everyone was having that special moment. I was feeling like a kid whose dream comes true.”
Liverpool and City are both expected to be battling it out at the top of the Premier League and fighting for Europe’s premier competition this season.
