The Egyptian is the seventh player to win the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) award twice. Mark Hughes, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne preceded him. Dennis Bergkamp, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie, Virgil van Dijk and Vivianne Miedema won the title once.
“Very nice to win this one, especially because players voted,” Salah said. “It shows that I’ve worked hard and that you get what you work for.”
Salah reached the final of the Champions League with Liverpool, but lost to Real Madrid. In the Premier League, he competed with Liverpool for the title until the last match day (Manchester City became champions) and the League Cup and the FA Cup were seized.
