A vast array of Liverpool fans jumped onto the Twittersphere to share their awe for talismanic forward Mo Salah following his productive performance against Watford this afternoon.
The fans in question called for the Egyptian to be recognised globally for his talents with the Ballon d’Or award, kickstarting a hashtag – #SalahBallonDOr.
Get it trending. Mo is the best in the world right now.

Firmino scored a hat-trick but it isn't even registered after yet another magical goal from #Salah and an equally brilliant assist.#SalahBallondOr

On current form, there’s certainly an argument for the Egyptian King to be recognised as the globe’s leading talent.
If he can maintain his current form through to the 29th November, when the award ceremony is set to take place, it’ll be tough for neutrals to overlook the 29-year-old when push comes to shove.
As far as we at the Empire of the Kop are concerned, the former Roma attacker has as much of a chance as anyone, especially after the 2020/21 campaign in which he near singlehandedly kept us in contention for a top four finish.
