Mohamed Salah makes bold Ballon d’Or award claim following Liverpool’s impressive streaks
Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah is having an impressive season for the Anfield outfit.
Mo’ Salah has scored 30 goals this season and assisting 13 more in 43 games so far.
Liverpool are in the race for a historic quadruple, and with Mo’ Salah’s brilliance, it might just happen and also help him win the 2022 Ballon d’Or and secure the title of best player in the world.
“In my mind, yes, I’m always saying that,” he said when asked if he is the best player in the world while doing an interview with FourFourTwo.
“Of course it means a lot, it would mean a lot to win it,” he told FFT. “One of my purposes in life is to change the people, especially in my country, an Arab country – that they can achieve what they want to achieve.
“Those things give them more belief in themselves, that they can do whatever they want.”
Salah showed humility saying;
“I will never say, ‘Yeah, I’m better than this person or I’m better than that person’, no – but in my mind I’m always choosing myself as the best, I don’t choose anyone other than me. It’s always opinion, though. I respect all other players.”
Salah jokingly added that winning the Champions League and the Premier League will be enough to land him the coveted Ballon d’Or trophy.
“Winning thesalm both again would make me win the Ballon d’Or”, he said.
