The author of a great new season with Liverpool, Mohamed Salah did not see his efforts rewarded with a place on the podium for the 2021 Ballon d’Or. For DMC, the Egyptian striker confirmed that he had difficulty accepting this seventh place.
Sure, the 2021 Ballon d’Or rankings still got people talking. After discussions about a lack of victory for Robert Lewandowski who finished second behind Lionel Messi, he became another world player to look at the event.
With his 22 Premier League goals last season and an impressive first half with Liverpool, Mo Salah was hoping for more than just seventh place in the standings. In an interview with DMC, the striker said that he did not understand that he was not being ranked higher: “The results of the Ballon d’Or were shocking to me. I don’t have much to say about it, but no one expected me to finish seventh in the last year, but this What’s happened “.
Note that Al-Masry is still ahead of world players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. The latter two, who have scored a string of goals with Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund when available, are often considered future favorites to win this trophy.
In an attempt to explain this situation, which is not befitting his contribution to the field in his eyes, Salah attacked certain countries, most of which over the years have raised tension on social media, by rating them as deserving players. Podium: “There are a lot of countries that don’t know how to vote. I don’t know on what basis they base their choices.”
If he refuses to contemplate a “conspiracy theory”, the Reds’ reaction according to the next Ballon d’Or rankings will undoubtedly be one worth watching. Should he win the Premier League title, combined with a good run in the Champions League, Salah could grab a few places in 2022.
