Messi denies competing with Ronaldo for status

His solitary goal made sure he entered his name in English football folklore as the highest individual scorer in a single season, beating illustrious names as Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.

He added: 'It is OK that he went the way he did, he won an important title here, he won the Champions League, won the Spanish league.

"What Mohammed Salah is doing is something that I am not surprised but am not surprise because he has demonstrated he can do it over the years", Kwadwo Asamoah on Atinka FM.

However, the 30 year-old does not think he has to move to another league before retiring in order to prove any doubters wrong.

Liverpool will have to cope with five-time Ballon d'Or victor and four-time Champions League victor Ronaldo if they are to lift the trophy for a sixth time, though, and 19-year-old Alexander-Arnold admits that it will be an "honour" to face one of the game's all-time greats.

The campaign in Europe saw the Portugal star set the record for wins in the Champions League .

"It's something they have", he said.

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool pose for a photo with his Premier League Golden Boot Award after the Premier League match between Liverpool and Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on May 13, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

He has since changed his mind, though, stressing: "After saying the words, I thought about it with a cool head and realised that leaving the national team gave the wrong message to the youngsters and the people who fight for their dreams. We want to overcome that barrier".
