Sheamus On Mohamed SalahThe wrestler who is a huge Liverpool fan was keen to shower praise on Liverpool’s Egyptian King Mohamed Salah who is one of the main contenders for the award.

“He’s an unbelievable player, one of the best players in the past couple of years, he’s world class. But I have a problem because the Ballon d’Or, I feel like it’s unfair to have just one player getting it.” 

“If you are up front and scoring goals, don’t get me wrong Salah’s goals are unbelievable, the one he got against Man City and the one the week after, he’s pulling them out, there’s nothing there and he’s scoring these amazing goals.”

“I feel like you should have a player in every position that gets the award, you can’t compare a world-class striker to a world-class goalkeeper or a world-class defender. It’s very imbalanced.”

“Say Ronaldo scores a penalty, celebrates like he’s won the World Cup, he might have done nothing in the match but that’s all that people see, the camera shots, that’s the back page.”

“If you’re a centre-back, like Van Dijk or whatever, not like Harry Maguire obviously, you’re a centre-half and you’re killing it but you’re not scoring the goals so the highlights aren’t about you.”

It is not the first time Sheamus has poked fun at a Manchester United player. Last month it was Ronaldo’s turn when the wrestler claimed the striker “wouldn’t last five seconds in the ring.”
