Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has revealed that he is a big fan of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah's game. Salah has been one of the best strikers in the Premier League over the last few years and Murray finds the Egyptian fun to watch.
Murray, a former world No. 1, is an Arsenal fan but that doesn't prevent him from watching Liverpool games and enjoying the brilliance of Salah. "I love watching him play because he's so exciting, I love his personality; he always has, not always, but a lot of the time he's smiling and he seems like he's enjoying himself.
Yes, it's tough not to love him for that and he scores amazing goals and it's just fun to watch," Murray told Eurosport. “I’m not saying he's the same as Lionel Messi but obviously they're both left-footed, both great dribblers and stuff.
I find his personality like kind of similar to Ronaldinho."

“When I was in Barcelona, when I was 15, I used to go along and watch the matches there a lot. And I just always loved him because I watched him and he just looked like he was having the time of his life and just partying," Murray continued.
“I watched them warming up before a match once and the whole team were doing sprints and everything and he was just on his own, just playing with the ball, keepy-ups, dribbling, kicking the ball like way up in the air and then trapping it and stuff.
“Salah reminds me a bit about that, the way he goes about the game and stuff, so I love watching him. But I made a bad decision this year”. Meanwhile, Murray played at the Mubadala World Tennis Championships last week.
Murray beat Rafael Nadal in the semiifnal but failed to win the title after losing to Andrey Rublev in the final.
