Sudan national team coach Zdravko Logarusic has alleged that his vote for Mohamed Salah at the 2019 FIFA Best Award was not counted.
Barcelona and Argentina midfielder Lionel Messi won the award after collecting 46 points.
FiFA’s record shows that the Sudan coach voted Messi as his first choice, Virgil van Dijk as second and Sadio Mane in the third place.
“In my vote, I picked Mohamed Salah in first place, Sadio Mane in the second, and Kylian Mbappe in third,” Logarusic told Sudan news outlet, Al-Arabiya.
“I took a photo of the voting application after I signed it with the Sudan Football Association and I don’t know what happened afterwards”.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane ended up in fourth and fifth places in the rankings with 26 and 23 points respectively.
