'Mohamed Salah can win Ballon d’Or' - Klopp

Jurgen Klopp claims Mohamed Salah has a chance of winning the Ballon d’or: ‘But I have no idea how exactly you win it.’

The Egyptian has bagged 10 goals in 10 matches so far this season across all competitions.

When asked whether or not the former Roma star could win the title.

He replied: “I have no idea how exactly you win the Ballon d’Or."

“If it’s about being in the Champions League final, scoring the most goals, then it could be slightly difficult but if it’s about performances over the last two years then he has a chance from my point of view but I’m not involved in the competition.

“Does he get the recognition finally? Internally he always got it, externally I don’t know,” the coach added during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, as quoted by

“After two goals he scored, now people think all of a sudden because of that he could be the best player in the world, it is a bit strange,” he concluded.

The Anfield side face Atletico today in the third Champions League group stage game.

They are in the same group as Milan, who visit Porto on Tuesday.

Both the Reds and the Wanda Metropolitano side beat the Rossoneri in their opening Champions League games of the season.
