Benzema vs Salah: They can win without him – Steve Nicol picks ‘important’ player
Former Liverpool defender, Steve Nicol, has offered his opinion on who he believes is more important to their team, between Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Reds forward, Mohamed Salah.
Both Benzema and Salah will face each other when Real Madrid clash with Liverpool in the Champions League final later on May 28 in Paris.
The pair are both front-runners for this year’s Ballon d’Or and Nicol was asked by ESPN FC who he believes is the better player, but the Scottish pundit replied: “I am going to go about it a different way.
“I think it is unfair to try and pick a better player, I am going to go from the angle of; which one is more important for the team? There is no question that the answer to that is Benzema.
“You take Benzema out of Real Madrid, you are taking 50% out of what is good about them. If you take Salah out of Liverpool, then Liverpool can still win.”
