Salah competes with Messi, De Bruyne for best goal in European Champions League



Egyptian and Liverpool football star Mohamed Salah is competing with the giants of the European Champions League for the best goal of the second round in the 16th round of the UEFA Champions League.

According to the official website of the European Union, Mohamed Salah is in the running thanks to his recent goal against the German team Leipzig in a match that the Reds won with two clean goals.

Salah is up against Lionel Messi, the Barcelona star, with his goal against Paris Saint-Germain, the goal of Kevin De Bruyne, the star of Manchester City, against Borussia Moenchengladbach, and the goal of Luis Muriel, the Italian Atalanta striker, against Real Madrid.

Liverpool’s coach Jurgen Klopp recently overlooked Salah and his colleague Sadio Mane and chose a player from Germany’s Bayern Munich as the best player in his coaching career.

Klopp chose, Lewandowski, who he coached during his time in the Bundesliga League. 

The German coach spoke of his decision, calling Lewandowski a wonderful player who always works hard with a fighting spirit during matches or in group and individual training. Like no other player, he fights in front of goal with ferocity and strength, he added.
