Mohamed Salah, Liverpool’s Egyptian King, crowned PFA player of the year

Liverool’s Mohamed Salah was crowned the Premier League’s Players’ Player of the Year on Sunday.

Salah, who has scored an incredible 41-goal so far in his debut season at Liverpool, beat out strong competition from Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne. The Egypt striker joined Liverpool last year from AS Roma.

“It’s a big honour. I’ve worked hard and I’m very happy to win it,” Salah said at the ceremony on Sunday evening.

Salah matched a Premier League record tally for a single season (38 matches) by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

“You’re comparing your name with some great names,” he said, on the prospect of breaking the record. “To break the Premier League record is something huge in England and all over in the world. There are still three games to go. I want to break this record.”
