    This is a serious message to Mohammad Salah, I really think that he is being manipulated by enlisting his name on a short list of best players then Ballon D’or to destroy his self confidence and to cause him to be distracted from focusing on his play.He needs to take this prizes out of his head same like Messi did.

      Meaning it is very possible that he will not be announced as the best player because if this is the case why he was not one of the first 20 names of best players. I really think that this a systemic manipulation to destroy his self confidence and distract him and preventing him from progressing.
