Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has weighed in on Egyptian international Mohamed Salah‘s standings in this year’s Ballon d’Or competition.
Salah finished ahead of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski in the Ballon d’Or, which was won by Lionel Messi.
Before facing Everton, Klopp said, « I was surprised by Salah’s position in the Ballon d’Or this year. »
« If Lewandowski doesn’t get it now, it’s hard to give it to him later, » he added, referring to Lewandowski’s lack of victory.
Klopp worked with Lewandowski at Borussia Dortmund before the Pole moved to the Bavarian giants in 2013, two years before Klopp’s departure.
