Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has voiced out his dissatisfaction for the award given to Mohammed Salah as he feels he deserves the FIFA ’s Pukas award for the goal of the year ahead of the Liverpool star.Bale came in from the bench to score two spectacular goals against Liverpool in the Champions League final in Kiev, his bicycle kick earned Real Madrid the second goal of the night and the third came from a long-range shot to seal the trophy for the Los Blancos for the third time in a row.The Welsh goals were overlooked as votes chose the Egyptian forward goal against Everton in the Merseyside derby in the Premier League ahead of his two superb goals.On winning FourFourTwo magazine's goal of the year award, Bale said that Salah's victory had "diminished" the status of the Puskas award.
"Yeah, I was surprised by that, to be honest," the Wales international said. "What can you say?"It makes the award look a little diminished, although it was obviously a great goal by Salah."
