Murphy convinced Liverpool striker Salah can be Ballon d'Or chance

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy says Mohamed Salah must have a chance at next week's Ballon d'Or ceremony.

The Ballon d'Or presntation ill take place on Monday, with Lionel Messi and Lewadowski the two current favourites to come out on top.

Rating Salah's chances of winning the prize, Murphy told MyBettingSites: "We're talking about elite footballers aren't we and there's always going to be few people with differing opinions.

"I think I'm correct in saying that the Ballon d'Or is a bit unusual in that it's given for a year rather than a season, so there is a bit of crossover from last season. The second part of last season wasn't ideal for Liverpool.

“There's no guarantees that he's (Salah) going to get it but he's certainly in the running and rightly so. But Lewandowski has been absolutely phenomenal also and you couldn't really argue if he would get it. It would be nice for Salah though."
