MO SALAH NAMED PFA PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah named PFA player of the year

Mohamed Salah has been named as the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year for the 2017-18 season. The Liverpool forward beat Kevin De Bruyne to take men’s award. Manchester City’s Leroy Sané is voted young player of the year. Salah was crowned PFA player of the year … then ordered home by his Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Egypt international saw off competition from the Manchester City trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sané and David Silva to become the second African player to win the award after Riyad Mahrez of Leicester in 2016. Tottenham’s Harry Kane came third, with De Bruyne second. Salah, who moved to Anfield from Roma last June for a club record fee of £36.9m, has scored 41 goals in his debut season as Jürgen Klopp’s side have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Salah was asked what it meant to become the first Egyptian to win the award.

“Hopefully I’m not the last one. I’m very proud to win and I’ve worked very hard. It’s an honor to win this award especially because it was voted for by the other players,” said Salah.

Salah was presented with the award at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on Sunday evening, with Man City’s winger Sané voted as young player of the year. 

Mo Salah won the PFA Player of the Year award for 2017-18 on Sunday night. The Liverpool forward, 25, beat Kevin de Bruyne, Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, David Silva and David de Gea in the vote by his fellow players. Manchester City's Sane won the young player prize, while Chelsea's Fran Kirby won the Women's Player of the Year award. Bristol City's Lauren Hemp was named Women's Young Player of the Year.

"I am happy and proud," Egypt international Salah said. "I didn't have my chance at Chelsea. It was clear I would return and show everyone my football. I think I left and came back a different person, man, and player. I would like to thank my team-mates and everyone at the club for helping me to make this happen.”

Salah has scored 31 goals in 33 Premier League matches for Klopp's Liverpool side and leads the race for the 2018 Golden Boot. The Egypt international's 31st league goal against West Brom on Saturday put him alongside Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez, who share the record for a 38-game season. Mo scored in both legs of Liverpool's 5-1 aggregate victory over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, as well as 4 goals in their EPL victory over Watford in March. The £34m summer signing from Roma, is just the 5th footballer to earn more than 40 goal involvements in a single Premier League season (31 goals, 9 assists). Salah also won the BBC readers vote. BBC Sport readers were asked to select their winner from the six-man shortlist and the Liverpool forward got 76% of the votes.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah could be off to Real Madrid in the summer. In a shocking report today, reportedly Spanish La Liga giant club Real Madrid will hand Mohamed Salah the No.11 shirt when he leaves Liverpool for the Bernabeu this summer. According to claims in Spain Florentino Perez has ‘closed’ a stunning deal for the winger, and Salah will take Gareth Bale’s shirt number who is expected to leave Real Madrid this summer. Spanish outlet Don Balon, known for outlandish transfer claims, reported that the former Roma and Chelsea man is set to leave Anfield for Los Blancos. And the La Liga giants see Salah as the perfect man to combine with Cristiano Ronaldo in their attack. Mo Salah went off injured in Liverpool’s win over Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday, and may not feature against Everton tomorrow. Barcelona are reportedly preparing a huge Arsenal swap deal proposal to beat Real Madrid to signing. The 25-year-old Salah has been in top form this season, netting 40 goals in all competitions for the Reds. 

   

Salah has been sensational at Liverpool this season under his boss Jurgen Klopp, with the Egypt international netting 40 goals in all competitions to date. Buy Liverpool tickets now from www.LiveFootballTickets.com to watch Mohamed Salah in live action!

Mohamed Salah with his Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he was "happy to have the opportunity" of being Salah's manager and added it was an "unbelievable honor" to win the award.

"It's been a fantastic ride but we still have games to go," Klopp said. "But please grab the trophy and come home. We play on Tuesday!"

"Everything he touches seems to go in the back of the net and he is having one of those seasons where you go out on the pitch not hoping you are going to score, but knowing you will. As a striker, I know that it is a great feeling to have," said Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer.

"Salah was supposedly over-priced when Liverpool paid £36.9m for him last summer but you could triple that fee and no-one would bat an eyelid - not that they would consider selling him now," BBC Sport pundit Rachel Brown-Finnis.

“The source of happiness for millions” Egypt reacted to Salah's award. “Everything he touches goes in the net.”

"To do what Salah has done in his first season at Liverpool is incredible. He has scored so many goals but he is also unselfish - he will always pick the best option even if that means he doesn't score but the team does," BBC Sport pundit Dion Dublin.

Manchester United Kevin De Bruyne was a close second. Many believed it was a two-horse race between Salah and De Bruyne for the men's Player of the Year award. Belgium international De Bruyne played a key role in Man City's title-winning campaign. He has provided more assists (15) and created more chances (104) than any other player in the Premier League this season, as well as scoring eight goals. The 26-year-old joined City for a then club record fee of £55m in 2015 and has won one Premier League title and two League Cups.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola talked about why he believed De Bruyne should have won the award.

"When you are analyzing 9 months or 10 months then there was no player better than him,” said Guardiola. "In terms of the continuity and playing every three days in all competitions he was there. I am sorry, maybe with numbers, there are numbers guys better than him, but no player in this season with the team who wins the title five games before the end, and he was the best. I would like to feel that he deserved it. But at the end in summer time we will be at home being champions and for that to happen the players have to play."

De Bruyne, who took 14% of the votes came in second. Man United goalkeeper De Gea was third with 6%, while Spurs striker Kane picked up 3% of the selections. De Bruyne's team-mates took up the final two spots, with Silva on 1% and Sane failing to win a single vote. Five Manchester City players were also named in the PFA team of the year, including De Bruyne and Silva. Sane missed out on a spot but defenders Nicolas Otamendi and Kyle Walker and striker Sergio Aguero represented the champions.

Leroy Sane beat Harry Kane to win the Young Player Award. Sane, 22, has scored 9 goals and provided 12 assists as part of the Premier League title-winning Man City side this season. He is central to Guardiola's attacking blueprint of width, pace and elusive running and has scored important goals in victories against Liverpool and Arsenal this season. The German international beat Kane to the award as well as City team-mates Ederson and Raheem Sterling. Sane played an important role in Manchester City's title-winning season. Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and Fulham's Championship Player of the Season Ryan Sessegnon were also shortlisted.

"I am really honored to win this award," said Sane. "Thank you to the fans and my team-mates. Congratulations to all the players who played alongside me. They played a good season."

England manager Gareth Southgate was pleased to see four English players nominated for the award and said the country has "exciting players and talent" coming through ahead of the World Cup in Russia. Bristol City's Hemp, 17, is her club's top scorer this season and has produced a number of exquisite performances in the Women's Super League 1. The forward was also named England's Young Player of the Year in 2017 after an impressive campaign with the U19s.

PFA Women's Player of the Year 2017-18 Chelsea's Kirby was 'humbled' to win award. Kirby, 24, was one of five Chelsea players shortlisted for the Women's Player of the Year award as the club chases the treble this season. She scored for England against France in the SheBelieves Cup last month and is Chelsea's top scorer this season.

"It is humbling for me," she said. "I have to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me. It's good to see people don't mind me scoring against them once in a while!

Liverpool in third place on England Premier League Table

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp returned to the Reds’ Melwood training ground today after being passed fit following a health scare earlier this week. The Merseyside club trained on Thursday ahead of this weekend’s Premier League meeting with Southampton, with Klopp able to resume his duties. Klopp spent much of Wednesday in hospital after reporting ill to Liverpool’s medical staff, who in turn insisted he undergo further tests. He was released within a few hours, relieved there was no serious problem. Fifty-year-old Klopp was forced to cancel his appearance at the star-studded premiere for the movie ‘Kenny’ – a tribute to former Liverpool star and coach Kenny Dalglish – which was held in the city on Wednesday evening.

Klopp will have his strongest line-up against Southampton on Saturday since he became the Liverpool manager with Adam Lallana the latest high profile player to return. Lallana has not played since pre-season due to a thigh problem but will be pushing for a place in the squad. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho made his return to action for Brazil during the international break, and despite returning from the Senegal squad early with a slight hamstring issue, Sadio Mane is also expected to be available. Klopp will have more options than at any time during this campaign, or during his two years in charge – with dynamic quartet Mane, Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah fit at the same time. Liverpool are just four points behind second-placed Manchester United on the England Premier League Table.
