“I wished I could play alongside Mohamed Salah,” Ronaldinho said, quoted by KingFut.
“He is one of the best players in the world who I always like to watch.
“He has to keep playing football in a way that makes him happy because there’s nothing better than playing football,” he added.

Ronaldinho arrived in Egypt following an invitation by Egyptian Premier League outfit Eastern Company to attend their clash with Al Ahly.

Unfortunately for the bottom-placed team, their game with the Cairo giants got postponed due to the latter’s preparations for the CAF Champions League final with Wydad.

Mo Salah Issues Another Warning to Real Madrid

Sports Brief earlier reported that Egypt and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has issued yet another caution to Real Madrid ahead of the finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Salah and his Liverpool teammates missed out on the opportunity to clinch the quadruple this season, however, despite the disappointment of losing out on the Premier League to Man City, the Reds have a wonderful opportunity on Saturday in the Champions League finals.

The Egyptian, who has a personal vendetta against the La Liga winners, earlier revealed he has a personal score to settle with the record holders of Europe's most prestigious club competition.
