When asked if he thinks Mohamed Salah should win the Ballon d'Or, Jurgen Klopp simply said "Yes".

“I have no idea how you win the Ballon d’Or.

“If it’s about being in the Champions League final and scoring the most goals, it may be difficult, but if it’s on the form of the last two years, then he [Salah] has a chance. Internally he always got the recognition, externally I don’t know.

“After the two goals he has scored people, all of a sudden, think he could be [the best in the world]. He has scored like this before and has performed on the highest level for many years.

“He will do it again and again. Whatever you want to write about him, do it, he deserves it"
