Brazil legend, Paulo Roberto Falcão, has backed the Premier League star that he believes deserves to win the Ballon d’Or award this year.
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is among the top candidates from the Premier League to win the Ballon d’Or, after a spectacular season that saw him win the Champions League and Super Cup with Chelsea and also the Euros with Italy.
However, Falcão has said that it’s Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, who deserves to win the 2021 Ballon d’ Or.
“Mohamed Salah, in the past few years, has made Egyptian football known to the world,” Falcao told Al-Hayah TV.
“Salah has a chance to win the Ballon d’Or this year, as he put on great performances with Liverpool.
“The Egyptian national team deserves to be present in the upcoming 2022 World Cup in Qatar, because it has distinguished players.”
Do you think Salah deserves the award over Jorginho?
