Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane lavished praise on Liverpool's red-hot winger Mohamed Salah on Friday, saying he "appreciates" the Egyptian a lot.

Zidane was responding to reports linking Salah with a move to Madrid as he previewed Saturday's Club World Cup final against Brazil's Gremio during a news conference.

He neither confirmed nor denied the swirling rumours but was full of praise for Salah.  

"He is a great player; he has shown that in Rome and now in Liverpool," said the French boss, who led Madrid to back-to-back European Champions League titles.

"He grows and gets better. He is young and can give even more to football. He is a player that I appreciate a lot."

He netted 19 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions and was named the BBC's African Player of the year.

Salah was also chosen as the Premier League's best player in November and is favourite to land CAF's award for the best African footballer in 2017.
