Coach Javier Aguirre argues that if Egypt triumphs at the Africa Cup of Nations, Mohamed Salah is sure to win the Ballon d’Or.
By lifting the Champions League last month, the 27-year-old capped a notable first two years with Liverpool, and Aguirre thinks that a win for the host country will secure the position of the forward among the world’s great.
I see him struggling to win the Ballon d’Or so far. Why isn’t that? He’s a Liverpool Champions League winner, “he said to Cadena Sur.
The player from Liverpool has two objectives from the group phases, and after winning 1-0, 2-0 and 2-0, Aguirre rejected suggestions his team did not score enough objectives.
Since I was in charge, we’ve scored objectives in 10 of the 11 games, “he told a press conference.
” Winning 5-0 every game is very hard, very hard.
