Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists Mohamed Salah deserved a better placing in the Ballon d'Or vote.

Salah was seventh in last night's Ballon d'Or rankings.

"Yes (I was surprised), I was to be honest," he said. "But it is not in my hands.

"Is the Ballon d'Or a journalists vote? Then yeah, don't ask me, it's your fault! If you think he should be higher up, then you should convince your colleagues.

"You can give it to Lionel Messi for the career he has had, all these kind of things, but then don't give it to Robert Lewandowski this time - so it's quite tricky to win it at all.

"Mo definitely should have been higher up."
