Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah won the PFA Player of the Year after he narrowly missed out on his second Premier League title. Salah won the Golden Boot along with Heung-Min Son and beat the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, and team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane. He scored 23 goals while providing 14 assists last season. To the surprise of many, Son did not even make the best XI.
“It’s a great honor to win a trophy, individual or collective and this one is big so, very happy and very proud of that,” PFA Player of the year Mohamed Salah said. “This one is a really good one to win, especially because it’s voted by players. It shows you that you’ve worked really hard and you get what you worked for. I have my room with trophies in a cabinet and I made sure that I had another space for one more. I always keep space and just try to imagine that the trophies are going to come.”
“When you get older, you feel like you’re more stable and you know exactly what you want from football so I’m just trying to really chill and help the team,” he added. “That’s why I think I also won the playmaker because it’s like you’re more aware of the game, so you just try to make the people next to you better and try to make yourself better as well.”
