Liverpool forward, Mohammed Salah has come out to say that he was shocked to see himself finish seventh place in the 2021 Ballon D’Or ranking. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he was very disappointed last year, and the defeat against Real Madrid is surely a disadvantage for this year, even if he played a good game in the final.
Salah added that if he is not a Ballon d’Or winner in 2022, he’ll do everything he can to win the next one.
His words, “I want to win it to join George Weah, the only African [in 1995],”
“It’s true that I was shocked by my ranking in 2021.”
“For this year, the defeat against Real Madrid is a disadvantage, even if I played a good game in the final. But it doesn’t cancel out everything I’ve achieved for months.”
“Let’s wait for the vote. And if I’m not Ballon d’Or in 2022, I’ll do everything I can to be the next one.”
“We deserved to win, we had more chances,”
“I had two or three clear chances but Thibaut Courtois made incredible saves.
“It’s his job, that’s what Real Madrid signed him for. It was his night.”
