Salah has great chance of winning Ballon d’Or, says Muller
The Egyptian has been phenomenal for Liverpool this season, scoring 44 goals and assisting 16 times, helping them reach their first Champions League final in 11 years.
Liverpool, who are hoping to win their first trophy under Jurgen Klopp, will face Real Madrid in the final on May, 26 in Kiev, with the Spanish side eyeing a third consecutive European title.
And Muller, whose side Bayern Munich were knocked out by Real Madrid in the semi-finals, says that Mohamed Salah should win the prestigious individual award if he guides Liverpool to the title.
“I think that Mo Salah was very impressive. Maybe if Liverpool can win the Champions League title, he’s a big candidate,” Muller told Mirror Football.
“The whole world is looking for a new Ballon d’Or winner. Leo Messi and Ronaldo are outstanding, but the performance of Salah this season was also outstanding. I think he has a great chance,” he added.
Thomas Müller is now preparing for his third World Cup with Germany, having featured in the previous two, scoring 10 goals in 13 games.
He is only six goals behind all-time top scorer Miroslav Klose, who managed to score 16 in 24 games across four tournaments.
