The situation

“He’s the greediest player I’ve ever seen,” said Graeme Souness after Liverpool’s game against United. Praise for Mohamed Salah is increasing in England and Europe. The performance of the Egyptian, too. With his goal -plus another he gave- against the Red Devils, he has 22 goals plus 12 assists in a season that is, once again, spectacular. He is the top scorer and top assists in the best league in the world. Not only that. The sports performance of the ‘reds’ is allowing them to fight for all the titles at stake . They have already won the Carabao Cup, they are in the FA Cup final, in the Champions League semi-finals and they have City in the Premier League. In other words, Salah can finish the season with four titles under his belt. That in addition to having reached the final of the African Cup, despite losing it on penalties against Senegal of his friend Mané. All these merits make him the greatest rival that Karim Benzema could face on his way to the Ballon d’Or. The level of the madridista is unquestionably sufficient to obtain the award, but so is Salah’s. The tiebreaker for those voters who had doubts when deciding between one and the other would be in the titles. There Salah can beat Benzema with four, who would never reach that number if that were the case.


It must be remembered that the Ballon d’Or changed some of its criteria to make the award more fair and accurate. Only the France Football correspondents of the top 100 classified in the FIFA ranking vote , personal performances are measured -rather than team-, the previous lists have the opinion of ex-football players and voting is done by calendar year, not by season. For this 2022 the World Cup is excluded.
