Mohamed Salah wins 5th place in the Ballon d’Or

The Egyptian international and Liverpool FC striker Mohamed Salah continues to appear strong in the competition for the Ballon d’Or in recent years, as he won fifth place in the current edition.

The editor-in-chief of France Football Pascal Ferry, spoke about Salah’s chances, saying: “He is among the six or six players nominated for this edition, because in the 2022/2021 season in the season he has made many achievements, and has been chosen as the best player in the English Premier League, but there are two points that are not in his favor, losing the final of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and not qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar.”

Ferry added: “Salah has the ingredients to be in the top three or more. In fact, he is an exceptional player. He will win the prize someday, and probably soon, and will reach brilliance for the award all over the world, in particularly in the Middle East and Arab countries.”

“He (Salah) is a true icon, and everyone knows that Mohamed Salah has contributed to the increase in the popularity of the Ballon d’Or.”

Salah ranked seventh in the Ballon d’Or ranking, during the last edition of 2021, while the Argentine star Lionel Messi won the award.
