Mo Salah may not be able to score 40 goals, but if May is a historic month for Liverpool, he could achieve something far more spectacular.
Mo Salah, the Liverpool superstar, hasn’t had the best 2022 season. He stated in an interview with BT Sport when his team reached the final of the Champions League that his goal for the season was to score 40 goals, but that seems improbable now.
Salah’s brace from the penalty spot against Leeds United in late February brought him to 26, and he must have thought he was on track. But he’s only managed to score a few goals since then, and there are only three games left.
Even yet, it’s easy to forget how impressive his track record is. He has 45 goals and 45 assists in 45 outings. It appears that one occurs every game, but it actually occurs every 81.4 minutes.
For comparison, Lionel Messi scored a goal per 80.6 minutes last season, which was enough to earn him the Ballon d’Or. Messi, who has had a rather low-key season in Paris by his unprecedented standards, will not be in contention this time.
Mo Salah and Karim Benzema are currently the two favorites, and they are meeting in the Champions League final. Benzema may be the best player on the earth right now, with his match-winning penalty against Manchester City on Wednesday bringing his total to 43 goals and 14 assists in as many games. He has already led Real to a comfortable La Liga title.
The fact that Sadio Mané is the third favorite this year emphasizes the importance of trophies. Mane’s 20 goals are impressive, but not at the same level as many of his opponents. He rose to prominence partly due to his victory in the Africa Cup of Nations.
The goal isn’t to debate the virtues of silverware-based judgment, but rather to highlight its prevalence. So, while Salah may not be able to equal Benzema’s statistics, if he can add the Champions League, and potentially another trophy, to the Carabao Cup he won in February, he may well have the upper hand. For Benzema, the La Liga title and the Spanish Super Cup may not be enough.
Salah’s failure to reach the AFCON final and the World Cup play-offs may unfairly count against him, whereas Benzema’s France has a real chance of winning in Qatar. However, the ceremony will have already taken place prior to the start of the event.
Salah has been awarded the PFA Player of the Year and the CAF Men’s Player of the Decade during his tenure at Anfield. The Ballon D’Or, on the other hand, is a step up, and whether or not this is his best season, it appears to be his best opportunity.
