The 2022 Gold Ballon will be held on October 17 and, for a while now, it has fed a lot of conversations. Pour beaucoup d’observateurs, the grandissime favori in the succession of Lionel Messi as Karim Benzema. But other claimants have not yet made a cross on the prestigious trophy. In the image of Mohamed Salah, who admits despite all that Liverpool’s reversal in the Champions League final against Real’s KB9 (1-0) will have an influence.
Salah elected best player of the season
The Gold Ball is at the forefront of my goals
The former Romain, however, has not “won” the League Cup and FA Cup with his club, losing in addition to the CAN final to shootouts against Senegal. “It’s great to have his name cited for the upcoming Gold Ball. I don’t know, I wanted to be recognized as the best player in the world. And the Gold Ball is in first place of my goals. “ Before adding: “It’s true that I was shocked by my 2021 ranking.”
Last year, Salah had taken seventh place in the hierarchy of this individual reward. With 121 points, he had in particular been ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, N’Golo Kanté or Jorginho, who had finished well away from the winner, Messi (613 points). He will probably be in better position this year. But he will no doubt still have to wait to sign his name on the palm.
