Salah: The Reds have more chances in the Champions League final, but Courtois’s Ballon d’Or is my goal
Live it on June 11. Salah talked about the Champions League final, the Premier League title race, the Ballon d’Or and other topics in an exclusive interview with L’Equipe.
Premier League title race just one point behind Manchester City
Salah: “The tension in the final title race and the final round was unbelievable, what can we blame ourselves? 92 points to lose only 2 games. The team will enter with the goal of winning the Premier League. In the new season, in 2019 we also finished second by a narrow margin, but in 2020 we won the Premier League.”
Another defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28 is a lot of defeats, isn’t it?
Salah: “We should have won the game because we had more chances (24-4), I had 2-3 great chances to score but they were ruined by Courtois. Of course It’s his job, Real Madrid brought him in for it, he deservedly won the man of the match, it was his night. But again I’m inspired by the past, in 2018 we lost the Champions League The final, but next season we are Champions League winners. That’s my goal, the team has to keep looking forward and not complaining here.”
Despite the failures of these two events, can we say that this season is still a success
Salah: “Of course we feel a huge loss in the Champions League and the Premier League, but can we say it was a losing season? I don’t think so. I’ve been the top scorer and the most assists in the British journalists and players voted Player of the Season and I was consistent and decisive all season. Liverpool had an exciting title race and won two titles (FA Cup and League Cup).”
The 2022 Ballon d’Or competition takes place at the Stade de France
Salah: “I don’t deny that I want to be recognized as the best player in the world and the Ballon d’Or is my number one goal. Indeed I am shocked by my ranking in 2021 (7th), for this year Well, the loss to Real Madrid was certainly a hindrance, although it was a good performance in the Champions League final, but it doesn’t negate what I’ve done over the past few months. Let’s wait for the jury’s vote if I don’t get 2022 This year’s Ballon d’Or, I will do everything I can to be the next one.”
