Former Liverpool star make huge Ballon d'or claim amid Champions League final


John Arne Riise give insight of how the Champions League final determines who win the Ballon d' or

Riise who was part of that Reds team 11 years ago, admits Salah has already done enough to be ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the honour.

According to John Arne Riise, Mohamed Salah can win the 2018 Ballon d'Or if Liverpool can be victor over Real in the Champions League final on Saturday.

 "[Salah] is so humble, he is so calm, he is always smiling. He gives his all for the team," Riise told Omnisport.

"This season, everything he has hit has been a goal. He is, for me, [deserving of] the Ballon d'Or this year. And if he wins the Champions League, or when - can I say when? - it will be 100 per cent sure.

"For me, he has been the best player this year."

Salah has dovetailed with fellow Liverpool stars Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, with Riise grateful that he has retired and is not required to take on a fearsome front three.

"It's hard to mark them because they keep changing positions and they're quick, they're technical, they can score goals, they can make assists for each other," he said.

"Plus they work together as a team and the front three is really powerful. I'm glad I'm retired and I don't play!

"They have to play the football they know best [in the final]. Our front three can hurt any team in the world and Madrid are going to be aware of that. Madrid can do the same.

"It's going to be a game, hopefully, with a lot of goals and, at the end, Liverpool are going to be the winners."
