Totti's words

"Salah is one of the 10 best players in the world and I have a relationship with him that goes beyond football," Totti said on Egyptian television. "Messi and Ronaldo remain. They are two different players, Messi is more technical, Ronaldo is more of a team man. Honestly, in 30 years of career, I have never understood how the Ballon d'Or is won, if it is a team award or an individual award."

"Salah, before being a great player, is an exceptional guy, humble, polite and always available. With us he had had a great season, he knew that if he went to a team like Liverpool he would become even stronger. If I were the president of a team, I would pay at least 200 million euros for him. We didn't have many anecdotes together, he led his own life. He would train and go home to his wife," Totti added.
