Cristiano Ronaldo vs Mohamed Salah: Gary Neville picks Ballon d’Or winner

Published

on

Cristiano Ronaldo is the only likely winner of the Ballon d’Or.Those are the thoughts of Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.

Ronaldo has been in sensational form in 2018, hitting 26 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid.

The Portuguese superstar has been locked in a constant battle over the past decade with Barcelona rival Lionel Messi.

He’s looking to capture his sixth Ballon d’Or and he could help Real lift their third Champions League trophy in a row.

Salah however, has rightly been receiving all the plaudits for his mesmerising performances.


The Egyptian hitman, who was crowned PFA Player of the Year last Sunday, has 43 goals to his name in 47 outings in all competitions for Liverpool this season.

This includes a stunning double in the first leg of the Reds’ 5-2 Champions League semi-final win over Roma.

But Neville doesn’t envisage Salah stopping Ronaldo from getting his hands on the award for a sixth time.
When asked on to compare Salah to Ballon d’Or rivals Ronaldo and Messi on Twitter, Neville wrote: “Only one winner = Cristiano.”

Salah will be looking to add to his Premier League goal tally when Liverpool host Stoke later today (12.30pm).

A win would lift them above Manchester United for at least 24 hours as they host Arsenal on Sunday (4.30pm).

Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has told Manchester United players to ignore instructions from manager Jose Mourinho and take matters into their own hands.

The Red Devils travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on title-chasing Liverpool, 16 points behind their bitter rivals.

A much-changed United side slipped to another demoralising defeat against Valencia in midweek and Keown believes Mourinho’s men are turning in the worst performances he has seen in 25 years.

“These performances are some of the worst we’ve seen from United in 25 years,” Keown told Football Focus.

“They are there for the taking – these United players almost need to stop listening to their manager now.

“If this is how they’re being told to play, the players are on their own – I don’t know the identity of this United team.

“They’re almost dreading games. Whether they change the manager is another thing but every game feels like a crisis now.

“Mourinho has an incredible job there but the ‘special one’ has become the ‘lonely one’.

“He’s almost enjoying the process of it coming to an end.”

Barcelona have banned Ousmane Dembele from turning off his phone, after he once again failed to arrive on time for training, uniquesports.com.ng reports.

Earlier this week, Dembele begged his team-mates for forgiveness in a private dressing-room speech, after being fined £90,000 for turning up two hours late to training, reports Daily Mail.

Manager Ernesto Valverde has now instructed the French winger, to keep his phone on all the time, so that he can be contactable if another issue arises.

Valverde is said to be content with the player’s improvement off the pitch and believes he has taken positive steps towards changing his attitude.

It is believed Dembele enjoys playing video games and watching TV until the early hours of the morning, which is the main issue.

Manchester City have returned to the top of the Premier League for another 24 hours at least, following a 3-1 win over Everton in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Pep Guardiola’s men saw their unbeaten start to the season end at Chelsea last week and Liverpool overtook them on the table.

However, the champions preserved their 100 per cent record at home against Marco Silva’s men.

Gabriel Jesus scored either sides of half time to give City a 2-0 lead, before Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back.

However, Raheem Sterling climbed off the bench, to head in a third and make sure the home side got maximum points.
