According to Jose Mourinho, it will be difficult for Mohamed Salah to win the Ballon D’Or this season despite winning the Champions League with Liverpool. The Reds were able to win the Champions League; they also finished just one point behind the Premier League winners Manchester City.
Mohamed Salah won the Golden Boot award in the Premier League this season along with Sadio Mane and Sergio Aguero. However, his performance in the Champions League is not very much satisfying. The Egyptian star footballer failed to make it to the squad of the season of the Champions League this season.
His stats in this season are not as good as the previous season. However, this time he has a Champions League winning medal with him that can make the difference. If we consider individual performances here, we will find that the competition should be between Lionel Messi and Virgil Van Dijk. Both these players had a wonderful season.
However, the Ballon D’Or trophy is mostly given to an attacker. So, Mohamed Salah still have an outside chance to win the award in this season. Accoding to Jose Mourinho, if Mohamed Salah can win the African Nation’s Cup with Egypt, he will win the Ballon D’Or trophy.
