The teenager is also on the 10-player shortlist for the inaugural Kopa Trophy, a new prize for the best player under 21, which is judged by stars including Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi.

"I can't designate one [to win it]".
Salah enjoyed one of the finest debut campaigns in Reds history with 44 goals after signing from Roma in 2017, including a record tally of 32 in a 38-game Premier League season. That's all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it.

Cape Town - France Football magazine has announced the first five nominees for the Ballon d'Or award featuring Sergio Aguero and Gareth Bale. Apart from that, it is a question of votes, opinions and different judgements. The victor of the prestigious Ballon d'Or organised by France Football magazine will be announced on December 3.
The Ballon d'Or criteria state that only performances from the current year are taken into account, and based on his 2018 form, Salah should not be on the shortlist.
