Salah had earlier helped Liverpool to progress to the quarter final of the Champions League after they defeated Porto 5-0 on aggregate.
Thompson was quick to say on Saturday that Jose Mourinho schooled Klopp with his tactics at Old Trafford and the midfielder has now insisted that man for man, Liverpool are the equals of runaway league leaders Manchester City.
"I think the first 15 years for these guys were like a holiday compared to what they had in the last 15 years of their job".
"There are just strong teams and that's why I don't care".
However, the 25-year-old, who sought a revenge on their arch rivals after last weekend's defeat said on his twitter that: "The UCL draw can't come soon enough". It will be interesting. "Now we have to see what happens from game to game - we'll try to win ours and see where we are at the end of the season".
We want to be champions.
A number of English newspapers highlighted on Wednesday morning Mohamed Salah's mockery of Manchester United after the team was knocked out from the Champions League Tuesday by Sevilla in the round of 16.
Liverpool last won the Champions League in the 2004-05 season, beating AC Milan on penalties following a 3-3 draw after extra time.
