Mohamed Salah has not been included in the Champions League Team of the Season despite outscoring and assisting names on the list.

The Egyptian vanquished his Kiev demons by slotting home a second-minute penalty against Spurs.

Liverpool won the Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday and Salah has now become immortalised in European Cup history but has been snubbed by UEFA.

In a dubious post on their official Twitter account, they announced: “UEFA’s Technical Observers have selected their 20-man squad from this season’s UEFA Champions League.”


Alisson, van Dijk, Trent, Robertson, Wijnaldum and Mane were named as part of the Champions League best performing stars during this season’s tournament.

Somehow, despite having the same number of goals and assists as Raheem Sterling and one more winners’ medal, Salah was omitted from the 20-man list.

Salah might not have matched the 10 goals he scored in Europe last season but his contributions this time round have counted for more as he helped the Reds win their sixth Champions League trophy.

The former AS Roma winger might not care about being included in UEFA’s Team of the Season but it is disappointing to see, especially given how his fortune changed this year.
