Mohamed Salah thinks Pep Guardiola would still choose the UCL over the Premier League


Say what you like, Liverpool and Manchester City are developing quite a rivalry.

After contesting possibly the most intense title race in the history of the Premier League, the two powerhouse sides are well set to reignite their ding-dong battle this season.

Both sides finished last season with silverware as Liverpool clinched a remarkable sixth European cup while City laid waste to domestic football by winning everything else.

Their titanic on-field battles were punctuated by a constant verbal back and forth between the players and the managers.

If they weren’t playing, they were constantly trying to subtly undermine what the other was in the process of achieving - and this season is no different.

Before their meeting at Wembley for the Community Shield, Pep Guardiola likened winning the Champions League to a massive gamble in the casino and claimed that winning the Premier League is a far greater achievement.

However, it seems a certain Liverpool star doesn’t quite agree with what the Spaniard had to say and has rebuffed his claims that the Premier League is the bigger tournament.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea, Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah made his feelings clear on the matter.

“Honestly, I didn’t know that he (Guardiola) said that, but I think if you give him a choice to choose which one, he would choose the Champions League,” Salah told CNN.


“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.”

It really is an impossible choice - the Premier League is a footballer’s bread and butter, but the glitz and glamour of the Champions League is simply intoxicating.
