  • Mohamed Salah named PFA Premier League player of the year

"I've worked hard and I'm very happy to win it", Salah said at the ceremony on Sunday evening.

The captian also praised the impact of manager Jürgen Klopp on the team, describing him as a coach who strikes the ideal balance between personality and determination.

Salah beat out Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva for the award.

Salah has been a revelation since joining Liverpool last July in a £36.9million deal from Roma, scoring 41 goals, and he will be looking to inflict maximum damage on his old club by steering Jurgen Klopp's team a step closer to the Champions League final.

City became just the latest victims of a famous European night at Anfield on the pitch three weeks ago as Liverpool raced into a 3-0 first leg lead that laid the foundations for their 5-1 aggregate victory over the English champions in the quarterfinals.

Salah's then club-record move was questioned at the time of the deal coming just two years after he had failed to make an impression in the Premier League with Chelsea.

CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad has congratulated Egyptian and Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah on his decoration as Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Player of the Year for the 2017/18 season.




"There's something special [about De Bruyne]", Pienaar concluded, "I think Kevin would get my vote if I had one". I always think about the team, I don't think about myself.

"It's been a fantastic ride but we still have games to go", Klopp said.

He has been out of this world this season, and he is a deserved victor of the PFA Player of the Year award.

"At Liverpool we see ourselves as a family club bit not everyone gets the chance to come over to Liverpool so what we've got to do is get first team players to come over here and entertain the supporters in Ireland".

His goalscoring prowess earned him five England caps, and helped Coventry win the FA Cup in 1987, but Regis is perhaps best known now as a pioneer for black players. A record shared with Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers, 1995/96), Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United, 2007/08) and Luis Suárez (Liverpool, 2013/14).

"As great an honour as this is, I am sure De Bruyne would rather have a Premier League medal around his neck", he said.

"To some extent, it surprises me that [Salah] has been doing so well in his first season at Liverpool", Totti told Liverpool's official website. "We are in the semifinal and can go to the final".
