Salah now adds the Premier League Player of the Year award to the PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers Award to the list of honours he has picked up for his performances this season. He also picked up the African Footballer of the Year award earlier in the season.

The 25-year-old Egypt international has had a remarkable first season for Liverpool by scoring 42 goals in 48 games in all competitions this season. He will be hoping to add to that tally with two more games left to play.

Those two games are now Liverpool’s most important of the season, with a point against Brighton today securing his team Champions League qualification for next season, and the Champions League Final on the 26th of May in Kiev against Real Madrid.

Salah told English sports broadcaster Sky Sports News: “It was always on my mind to perform the best I can. I had two great seasons in Rome but it was always on my mind to come back to the Premier League to show the people who said I wasn’t a success the first time. It was always in my mind to become a success in the Premier League.

“I am very happy. It’s an honour to win this award especially for Africa and Arab people. I am very happy and very proud. I hope it’s not the last.

“Before everything, me and Jurgen Klopp are friends. He has helped me a lot to do what I am doing now. Outside the field, I have to thank him a lot for everything he has done this year.

“I really, really respect him a lot. I’m sure we can do something special for the club this year to end.”

Salah now has the chance to cap off the season and surely make it a special end to the year by picking up a Champions League winners medal. Surely this will make him favourite to in The Ballon d’Or.
