Salah Shortlisted For Balloon d'Or

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has made the shortlist of 30 players for the prestigious Baloon d'Or award. The award is given annually to the best player in World Football as voted on by a panel of 100 journalists across FIFA Nations.

The other 29 nominees are: Josko Gvardiol, Andre Onana, Karim Benzema, Jamal Musiala, , Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, Randal Kolo Muani, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Nicolo Barella, Emiliano Martinez, Ruben Dias, Erling Haaland, Martin Odegaard, Ilkay Gundogan, Yassine Bounou, Julian Alvarez, Vinicius Junior, Rodri, Antoine Griezmann, Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez, Robert Lewandowski, Kim Min-jae, Luka Modric, Kylian Mbappe, Victor Osimhen, and .

LFC Globe Verdict

By Mohamed Salah's lofty standards, he had had a subpar season last year. Even so, he is being recognised as one of the Top 30 players in World Football just speaks to his greatness. I'm certainly glad he is still wearing a Liverpool shirt for now.
