Cristiano Ronaldo declares himself fit for Liverpool's Champions League clash

Cristiano Ronaldo declares himself fit for Liverpool's Champions League clash

Another 43 goals have been added to his remarkable haul this season, with 15 of those helping Madrid through to another Champions League final.

The Egyptian worldwide, however, said he needs to maintain his current level of form for a number of years to be compared with Messi and Ronaldo.

But he told Egyptian TV: "I don't want to say I am happy with these kind of comparisons".

Lionel Messi may have gone two years without winning the Ballon d'Or, but the Barcelona attacker is better still now than he was when he was racking up the individual awards, says Paulo Zabaleta. Their performance level is stable. I hope I can do that.

"I have 25 players and some have to rest, but not thinking that they will get injured, if not then we wouldn't play what we have left".

The Argentina worldwide was named the world's best player for the fifth time when he was awarded the Ballon d'Or in 2015, but has watched Cristiano Ronaldo beat him to the title twice since then.

Salah struggled in his first stint in the Premier League at Chelsea but has proved his doubters spectacularly wrong this season.

Back in October, it was the Argentinean's turn to be "happy just to be nominated" as Ronaldo claimed his second consecutive FIFA "The Best" award, following a season where he inspired Real Madrid to a La Liga and Champions League double. I loved watching them so much. We have very good relationship together and are still friends until now.

"As a coach I have to play the games and I will pick the teams I see as convenient".
