Liverpool forward, Mohammed Salah has been crowned the Premier League Player of the Season following a spectacular first season with the Reds.
The 31-year-old Egyptian, who also won the PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year awards, becomes only the third Liverpool player to win the Premier League award after Michael Owen and Luis Suarez.
He has made 50 appearances for Liverpool in all competition so far this season, scoring a total of 43 goals, which includes 31 goals in 37 League appearances.
“They say I didn’t have success here the first time,” Salah said after winning the award.
“So it was always in my mind to have success here in the Premier League. I am very happy. I am very proud to win it.”
The Egyptian will break the 31 goals a season record if he scores against Brighton in Liverpool’s last game of the season, a record jointly held by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.
Speaking about Jurgen Klopp’s impact on his impeccable first season at Anfield, he said: “He has helped me a lot to do what I’m doing now, on the field and off it, I have to thank him for everything he has done this year.
“But still two games, we have to think about that. I really, really respect him a lot and I’m sure we are going to do something special for the club this year.”
Salah beat Manchester City’s duo of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, United’s David De Gea ,Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley’s James Tarkowski to claim the award.
