The Serbian official took charge of the 2017 Confederations Cup final, the 2016 European Super Cup between Real Madrid and Sevilla, and Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Manchester United in the 2015-16 Europa League.
The Bayern Munich attacker spoke the Daily Mirror about his premonitions for the upcoming award and the German said that Salah would be his pick for it, ahead of the likes of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. With his abilities as a player, Ronaldo is the best ever.
But Morientes, a three-time victor of the competition with Madrid who also played for Liverpool, believes there will be a nervousness about the Reds given they have not been in the final since 2007, while Zinedine Zidane's side have experience in their favour.
Ronaldo's decline in the first half of this season was as concerning as his reawakening in 2018 has been breathtaking.
The Portuguese star has found the net 41 times this season, and his coach is confident he will be at his very best again.
Despite only scoring four times before La Liga's winter break, he ended up with 26 goals in that competition, behind only Messi.
For his 2002 Champions League Final goal...
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has some big decisions to make about who to pick in Kiev and what shape to play, but he will make them with the way Liverpool are set up in mind.

"He knows when is the right time and the right moment to accelerate or to speed the game up". However, Real's success shows that the Frenchman has the ideal blend of man-management and tactical understanding to set his team up in the best manner possible to achieve greatness in Europe.

Salah has scored 44 goals in his first season at the club.
