Rodrygo tells Mo Salah “you ain’t Cristiano Ronaldo”

Real Madrid winger Rodrygo Goes has dished out some comments about Mo Salah in his recent interview. Rodrygo was Real Madrid’s star in the Champions League Semi Final as the Brazilian scored two injury time goals to save Madrid from the brink of elimination.

Rodrygo’s heroics meant Real Madrid would beat Man City and set up a Final date with Liverpool. Both sides had previously met in 2018 where Real Madrid came out victorious 3-1. Liverpool winger Mo Salah was injured in a clash with Ramos and he saw the Final with Madrid as a chance for revenge.

Salah had started talks as soon as he got to know Real Madrid will be facing Liverpool. In an interview with caughtoffside, Salah said:

“Yeah, we lost in the final (in 2018); it was a sad day for all of us but, yeah, I think it’s revenge time.”

Mo Salah also tweeted that he has a score to settle with Madrid as the final with Madrid was confirmed.

However, Real Madrid winger Rodrygo is of the opinion that Mo Salah talked too much and couldn’t back it up. Rodrygo also sent a cheeky message to Salah that he isn’t Cristiano Ronaldo.

In an appearance on the Pohpah podcast, Rodrygo said:

“Salah talked too much but couldn’t back it up. In fact, you have to be like Cristiano Ronaldo. He says something before the game and does it afterwards. At Real, nobody does that at the moment. It’s mostly our opponents who open their mouths before a game.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has said about turning the outcome of the games on numerous occasions and backed it up too but Salah couldn’t live up to his words. Perhaps thats what separates Cristiano Ronaldo from the rest.
