African football legend George Weah has urged Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to erase plans of winning the Ballon d’Or out of their mind.
The Liberian President who won the award in 1995 and remains the only African player to do so believes the duo should not force themselves too much to get the award as it can affect their output.
“They shouldn’t obsess over the Ballon d’Or, rather they should focus on their performance and try to improve more. [They must not] put unnecessary pressure on themselves.” Weah told Canal+
Many people are of the view that the Weah does not want his record to be equaled and is doing that to distract the two players who have the tendency of winning it one day.
