'The Champions League is the biggest competition in football': Liverpool star Mohamed Salah dismisses Pep Guardiola's claim that the Premier League is the most important trophyMohamed Salah has dismissed Pep Guardiola's Champions League claimsGuardiola claimed that the Premier League is the harder competition to winSalah, however, is adamant that the Champions League is more important

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has dismissed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola's claim that the Premier League is harder to win than the Champions League. 

In April, when his City side were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage by Tottenham in dramatic circumstances, Guardiola claimed that the Premier League is of greater importance. 

City went on to win the league last season, with Liverpool being crowned European champions.

As reported by goal, Guardiola said: 'The Champions League is seven games, you can win the Champions League but the league is every three days in the same month.

'I'm sorry but it's much more important what these guys have done the whole season.'

Salah, however, is adamant that the Champions League is a more difficult competition to win.

'Honestly, I didn't know that he (Guardiola) said that, but I think if you give him a choice to choose which one, he would choose the Champions League,' Salah told CNN.

'That's my opinion. I'm not talking about him, but my opinion. It's the biggest competition in football, so everyone wants to win it.

'Every coach, every player wants to win it, dreams of winning it. So, of course, the Premier League also is something big, but still the Champions League is the biggest competition.'

Salah opened his account for the season as Liverpool commenced their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 victory at home to Norwich.

The winger will be aiming to find the net against his former club Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul on Wednesday night.

Guardiola has won the Champions League twice as a manager, both times with Barcelona, in 2009 and 2011. He failed, though, to win Europe's elite club competition when in charge of Bayern Munich and has so far been unable to do so at City.
