Mohamed Salah had a successful season with Liverpool as they won the Champions League and were close to winning the Premier League as well, however they missed out on the chance by finishing 2nd.
However, Egypt national team boss Javier Aguirre thinks that the UCL trophy isn’t enough for Salah to win the Ballon d’Or. The manager claims that the Liverpool star need to lead Egypt to glory in the Africa Cup of Nations.
“I see him so far struggling and struggling hard to win the Ballon d’Or. Why not? He is a Champions League winner with Liverpool,” he told Cadena Sur. (via Mirror)
“If he can lead Egypt to the African Cup of Nations, no one can keep the Ballon d’Or away from him.”
Salah has scored two goals in his side’s three group games.
Egypt’s upcoming game is against South Africa on July 6.
