Brazil legend, Rivaldo, has said Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is “one of the best players in the world” and should be in contention to clinch the 2021 Ballon d’Or.

Salah had made the 30-man shortlist for the prize this year.

The Egyptian is among 18 other Premier League footballers up for the award.

Salah, 29, has already scored six goals in seven appearances in the league for the Reds.

He also grabbed a brace in the 5-1 thrashing of FC Porto in the Champions League, having netted against AC Milan in a 3-2 in the first fixture.

Salah, who arrived at Anfield in 2017 from AS Roma, has also become the fastest player in the club’s history to reach 100 goals.

“Liverpool’s Egyptian forward [Salah] is producing a fantastic start of the season with impressive stats and a sensational goal against Manchester City last weekend.

“He’s one of the best players in the world right now because his astonishing numbers in terms of goals and assists are obtained in the Premier League and Champions League, two of the most difficult competitions on the planet.

“When you are so good in demanding conditions, then of course you are a top player who deserves to be among the contenders for the Ballon d’Or this season,” Rivaldo, an ambassador for Betfair, wrote.

Salah has been named in the top 10 of the Ballon d’Or once before back in 2020 after finishing fourth in the rankings behind Messi, Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo.
