Champions League: Benzema and Mané, a Ballon d’Or for two

-

Published on: 05/28/2022 – 09:42 Saturday’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool could be decisive for the Ballon d’Or. Especially since two stars whose name is mentioned with insistence will compete on the lawn: Sadio Mané and Karim Benzema. One dazzled Spain, the other conquered Africa: the French goleador of Real Madrid Karim Benzema and the Senegalese striker of Liverpool Sadio Mané clash, Saturday, May 28, at the Stade de France in the League final champions, for a duel in the form of the last step towards the Ballon d’Or. It is difficult to imagine the most prestigious individual award in football, which will be awarded on October 17, escaping the Madrid center forward who, at 34 years old, has just signed the best season of his career. With 44 goals and 15 assists in 45 club matches this season, Benzema took his team to a 35th La Liga title at the end of April, before a possible “decimocuarta” (14th) unexpected in C1. “It’s excellence, it’s Karim””He’s one of the best players in the world, probably the best center forward in the world and perhaps the most underrated player in history”, assured the president of the UEFA Aleksander Ceferin, in an interview with AFP. In the event of a double at Saint-Denis, the former Lyonnais could even equal the record for goals in a C1 campaign of his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo (17 in 2013-2014) . “Records are made to be broken,” smiled the French striker in an interview on the UEFA website. “It’s excellence, it’s Karim, of course. (…) Me, I I’m all for it being a French player (who has it, editor’s note). Because of what he does with his club throughout the year, and with us too in the France team, yes, he does. merit”, assured the French coach, Didier Deschamps, in an interview with beIN Sports, Sunday. Zidane in 1998. Sadio Mané, the second crowned African in history? On the pitch as well as in the votes, stands before him the ultimate barrier which separates him from the trophy: Sadio Mané, in the running to become the second African to win the Ballon d’Or after Liberian George Weah in 1995. “It’s sad that no other African player has won it since Weah,” he said. e. “We’re going to do everything to win the Champions League, and then we’ll see what happens with the Ballon d’Or.” For the Ballon d’Or, “you have to be either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo or having won the Champions League. By winning on Saturday, it will increase his chances”, assured his coach Jürgen Klopp. If he scores less (23 goals in all competitions), the 30-year-old striker is the spearhead of ‘a collective that has won almost everything. With the Champions League, Liverpool would complete a nice treble, in addition to the FA Cup and the League Cup, which would console them for the Premier League which escaped them for a single point , in favor of Manchester City. In the jersey of Senegal, in two different matches, he scored the shot on goal which offered the country its first African Cup of Nations at the beginning of February, then the one which sent it to the World Cup-2022 at the end of March. Both time, it was against the Egypt of his team-mate Mohamed Salah. , after six years, his future on the banks of the Mersey is very uncertain. The shadow of Salah, who also wonders about his future, makes the Senegalese want to go elsewhere. With a one-year contract to honor and 30 years since April 10, the interest shown by Bayern Munich or the PSG cannot leave him indifferent if he wants to give himself one last challenge with a big contract. According to several media, on Friday, the Bavarian club would be on pole to welcome him. “I will answer after the Champions League. Whether I leave or stay, I will answer afterwards”, he slipped into a smile at the microphone. from Sky Sports, Wednesday.For Klopp, “he will be an important player wherever he plays next season”.With AFP
