So Mo Salah was up for the FIFPRO World Player of the Year last night against Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.
In this respect, he was named as one of the best three performers on the planet, but ridiculously, didn’t make the FIFPRO World XI!
In his place, there were four attackers: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard…
Salah scored twice as many goals as Mbappe last season and led Liverpool to the Champions League Final. He scored way over double Hazard’s meagre tally of 17, with the Belgian suffering one of the worst seasons of his Chelsea career, all things considered.
Hazard had a better World Cup than Mo, but in fairness, Salah was playing for Egypt and not Belgium!
What a mindbogglingly stupid decision. But to be honest, the fact Dani Alves made the side is even more crazy. He started 23 games for PSG and missed the World Cup…
Waste of everyone’s time.
No Mohamed Salah in the Fifa Pro World 11 but Eden Hazard makes it… pic.twitter.com/dbTrLMR9TE

I’m a Chelsea fan but how is Hazard there over Salah 😂😂

So Salah makes it in the top 3 best players but does not feature in the World Xl? Hazard didn’t even feature in the top 3 but he somwhow made it in the World Xl? FIFA’s logic is so flawed here.

“Did you know that Mo Salah broke the Premier League goalscoring record from the wing in his first season at Liverpool, and led his team to the Champion’s League final, but 12 goal massive fraud Eden Hazard got into the FIFA Team of the Year instead?” #FIFAFootballAwards pic.twitter.com/bgaOaFGMpU

It’s nice to know that even FIFA don’t value their own credibility or Team of the Year award. Eden Hazard over Mohamed Salah is absolutely ludicrous.

Hahaha Hazard in, Salah out? That is absolutely atrocious. Dani Alves?? De Gea in but Courtois wins the Gk award. SHAMBLES
