Mohamed Salah has moved into second position in the running for the forthcoming Ballon d'Or award according to the bookmakers with his performance against AS Roma at Anfield consolidating his status as one of the most in-form players on the global stage.
Cristiano Ronaldo still leads the way with a price of 2,63 euro dividend for every euro placed. Salah's price has come down moving from 12/1 to 3/1.
Barcelona's Lionel Messi completes the podium with the Argentine player some way off the pace on a price of 15/1 along with Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne on the same price.
George Elek, spokesman for Oddschecker admitted that the fluctuation was due to Salah's sensational season with his performance against Roma enhancing his reputation.
The forthcoming World Cup which will see all four top runners involved with their respective national sides will also be instrumental in determining who will pick up the coveted award.
