The answer is a resounding yes. For the past 13 years Lionel Messi and Ronaldo have been the two best players undoubtedly. The two have won 11 ballon dors in that time. Only Luka Modric and the cancelled awards due to covid have prevented the two in those 13 years.
But now there is a vacuum. Messi and Ronaldo are not in great form. Ronaldo was completely invincible against Leceister today. He looks slow, he cant chase, he doesn't track back. There is really nothing impressive him at the moment. The fact that he won player of the months against Mo Salah is just incredible.
On the other hand, Mo Salah has the best claim for the ballon dor if he keeps performing like this. A wonder goal and a brilliant assist in the last two games suggests Mo Salah's time has arrived.
