Mohamed Salah had nothing to say about this year’s Ballon d’Or rankings.
Since 2017, Mohamed Salah has been one of Liverpool‘s most reliable goal scorers. This year is no different as the Egyptian striker finished the 2020-21 season with a total of 31 goals.
However, it seems that it wasn’t enough for him to earn his first Ballon d’Or award, having wound up at the seventh spot in the final rankings.

Salah’s mentor and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, on the other hand, couldn’t quite believe how this year’s Ballon d’Or rankings went down.
“I was surprised about his position,” Klopp said of Salah’s Ballon d’Or ranking via The Mirror. “Journalists vote for the Ballon d’Or so…if you think he should be higher up, you should convince your colleagues!”
“Mo [Salah] should have been higher up, definitely,” he pointed out.
