Popular pundit Gary Lineker was one of the major critics of the decision. On his Twitter page, he wrote, "He’s been terrific, but Mo Salah should’ve won this….comfortably"

1. The Mo Salah factor.

Though Salah scored 3 goals in September just like Ronaldo, the Egyptian star had an assist to his name while Ronaldo had none.

Apart from the assist, Mo Salah also created a host of chances for his team than Cristiano Ronaldo.

All Cristiano Ronaldo does is to wait in the box and expect a cross or a good pass.

2. Lucky goals

Another reason thinks Ronaldo doesn't deserve the award is that all the three goals he scored in September were either a tap-in or goalkeeper's mistakes.

As such, Ronaldo didn't really work hard for these goals.
