Salah vs Benzema: Moreno chooses better player
Former LA Galaxy forward, Alejandro Moreno, has picked who he prefers as a better player between Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Benzema and Salah are set to engage in the UEFA Champions League final battle as Real Madrid faces Liverpool on May 28.
Both superstars are at the peak of their powers, scoring several goals so far this season.
They are being touted as potential winners of the 2022 Ballon D’Or.
Benzema has a brilliant record of 43 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid so far.
At the age of 34, the France international is currently the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League with 15 goals.
Meanwhile, Salah is in dazzling form yet again for Liverpool, having scored 30 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions for the Reds.
Asked who he believes is the better of the two, Moreno told ESPN: “Karim Benzema, not only do I pick him ahead of Mo Salah, I pick him ahead of anybody else in the world right now. That is how good he has been over the last few months, the best player in the world.
“No matter who you put on the other side, I am still taking Karim Benzema. He has been outstanding, his goals have been critical, the execution in the final 3rd, the penalties. Everything you can ask a striker to do, he’s been giving a clinic. I am taking Karim Benzema.”
