Mohamed Salah has mocked Harry Kane on BT Sports UCL Unfiltered ahead of the Champions League final.
Salah and Kane have enjoyed a rivalry in their tussles for the golden boot in previous seasons.
Tensions rose when Kane claimed a dubious goal to try to beat Salah to last year’s prize, but to no avail.
Now, Salah has further ignited the flames between the two with his cheeky comment to BT Sports:
“Harry Kane is a good player and he proved for many years.
“He’s a top scorer for his team and in English football. Before I came!”
Salah’s comments are sure to get under the skin of Spurs fans ahead of the final in Madrid this weekend.
But his comments are true – as Salah has outscored Kane in each of his two seasons in the Premier League.
It goes without saying that both Kane and Salah are talented players with a keen eye for goal.
But Salah has proved that he can go one better, scoring seven more goals than Kane over the last two seasons.
Salah has also been prolific in the Champions League, notching 14 goals in the last two campaigns.
Both players are pivotal to their team and will likely take centre stage in the Champions League final in Madrid.
Chances for either men could prove crucial in what is set to be a tense, thrilling game.
Salah appears to have reopened the rivalry between the two, but knowing him, he’s probably just having a laugh.
But it could also been seen as some brilliant mind games ahead of such a huge fixture.
One thing is for sure, either one of Salah or Kane will be having the last laugh on Saturday.
