'Salah is on Messi and Lewandowski's level' - ex-Liverpool striker Awoniyi

 There was widespread surprise when the on-form Egyptian forward finished only seventh in the Ballon d'Or voting, well behind the top two

Taiwo Awoniyi has backed Mohamed Salah as a future Ballon d’Or winner, insisting that his former Liverpool team-mate is on the same level as Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.

Salah finished seventh in this year’s list, despite being widely touted as the world’s best player on current form.

The Egyptian was also a surprise omission from the 23-man FIFPRO XI shortlist, which was released this week.
