Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp: Salah Deserved The Ballon d’Or, But I’m Not Sure How It Works

Posted by

Mohamed Salah, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, deserves to win the Ballon d’Or as a reward for his consistency. Since his arrival at Anfield in July 2017, Salah has been one of the most prolific scorers in the Premier League.

The Egypt international scored a goal in Liverpool’s 5-0 hammering of Watford on Saturday, tying Ivory Coast and Chelsea icon Didier Drogba for the most goals in English Premier League history with 104.

Asked whether Salah can win the prestigious award, during a press conference on Monday, ahead of their Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, Klopp said: “Yes. I have no idea how exactly you win the Ballon d’Or: if it’s about being in the Champions League final, scoring the most goals, then it could be slightly difficult but if it’s about performances over the last two years then he has a chance from my point of view but I’m not involved in the competition.

“Does he get the recognition finally? Internally he always got it, externally I don’t know. After two goals he scored now people think all of a sudden because of that he could be the best player in the world, it is a bit strange.
