Man Utd legend Keane: Salah no Ballon d'Or contender because...

Manchester United legend Roy Keane isn't convinced by the hype around Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah.

Keane thinks Salah needs trophies before he joins the elite club.

The ITV pundit said: "He's obviously rightly nominated for the big awards.

"But I always look at the strikers who are playing well, the Ronaldo's and the Messi's.

"They've both scored 40 goals at least this season and I still think you have to end up with one or two trophies at the end of the season for your club.

"Part of my make-up when I was playing was when your strikers are scoring 25-30 goals a season that's fine, but you have to win trophies.

"If they can win the Champions League and he scores in the final, then yeah, start handing out the awards. But he still has to do a bit more for me at club level."
