Particularly successful since the start of 2022, Liverpool striker Sadio Man was once again decisive against Villarreal (2-0) on Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals. Brilliant, the Senegalese stands out as a credible candidate for the Ballon d’Or.
Sadio Man scored against Villarreal.
There was a class difference between Liverpool and Villarreal (2-0) this Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals. At Anfield, the Reds logically opted to qualify for the final with a goal from the inevitable Sadio Man.
In great form since the beginning of 2022, the Senegalese international continues to cause a panic in the accountants.
Man, it’s strong!
Against the Spanish formation, the former Messin, regularly repositioned in the axis since the arrival of Luis Díaz this winter, found the goal to score his 10th goal in 17 games in all competitions since his return from the European Cup Africa of Nations , won with his country, at the beginning of February. Not 7/10 by Maxifoot editorial (see Dbrief and Notes here), Man on this occasion also became the African co-top scorer in history in the knockout stage of C1 with 14 goals, tied with a certain Didier Drogba.
Although Mohamed Salah, after his disappointments with Egypt, has slowed down a bit in recent weeks (the same 7 goals and 5 assists in 18 games), the Banbali native stands out as a safe bet for the English club in 2022. Sadio is an exceptional player. He is a world class player. He still played a very good match for us. (…) Sadio wants to help the team and that’s what I likeHe also admired his coach Jrgen Klopp.
The Ballon d’Or is possible…
Thanks to his individual performances, Man logically embodies a credible candidate for the Ballon d’Or. With his CAN crowning addition, the Senegalese looks capable of unsettling the current favorite, Real Madrid center forward Karim Benzema. The Ballon d’Or for Sadio? I don’t understand how you can ask me this question when the season is not over.Klopp replied.
Historically, you have to win something to win the Ballon d’Or. If you’re not Messi or Ronaldo, you probably have to win the Champions League, which we haven’t done yet. Give us a few weeks and we’ll see., finished the German. Already a League Cup winner with the Reds this year, Man can dream big if his club, still in contention for final victory in the Premier League, C1 and FA Cup, finish the season in style.
