Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels that Mohamed Salah’s goal against Everton should not have won FIFA’s Puskas Award
Fans were outraged to see Salah’s strike in the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton last season beat the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo’s spectacular bicycle kick against Juventus and Gareth Bale’s acrobatic goal in the Champions League final.
While agreeing with the supporters, Ibrahimovic added that he doesn’t care as he was not nominated for the accolade.
The Swedish striker, who won the prize in 2013, had his own unique say.
Asked if Salah should have won, Zlatan replied: “No.
“I did not see the candidates, if my goal was not there I am not interested.
“My goal should have been there – the one against LAFC. Maybe I am there next year.”
Salah’s Liverpool teammate James Milner also poked fun at the decision.
