Former Nigeria international Sunday Oliseh has backed up claims made by former Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o.
When asked who he thought should’ve won The Best FIFA Men’s Award in Italy on Monday, Eto’o said that either of Liverpool’s duo Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane should’ve walked away with the top accolade.
Oliseh stated that he stopped watching the award ceremony after the African pair failed to make the FIFA FIFPro’s World 11.
He tweeted: “How Sadio Mane & Mo Salah did not make the world best 11, practically shocked me & I went to bed.”
The Reds duo played a vital role in Liverpool winning a sixth European crown with a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the final.
In total, Mane scored 26 goals for Liverpool across all competitions last season while Salah chipped in with 27.
