Mohamed Salah thinks he could win the Ballon D’Or if Liverpool are able to secure big trophies this season.
The Reds will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28 and they are just one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
Salah has 30 goals from 46 matches and the Egyptian knows he must win silverware if he wants to be Ballon D’Or contender alongside Real striker Karim Benzema.
“I lost last time because I scored 40 goals but we didn’t win any trophies,” claimed Salah. “This time, my number is really high and we’ve already won one cup. If we win the next two, it’s going to be exciting who is going to win it.
“In the meantime, we have to focus on the main things which is the trophy for the team, then the rest will follow.
“This is my best season for me at Liverpool. The goal and assist numbers are high and the way I created chances, the highest number in the Premier League, everything around the game has changed a lot.
“I don’t feel that good when the team loses games, or when I don’t score or make a difference. But when the team wins and I don’t score, I’m still very happy.
“I just try to find the small things to fire me up. I try to look at a small record there, or another record there to keep my mind busy. I try to be driven with these records to break them, I try to be hungry for something new.”
