London,ENGLAND:Mohamed Salah has won the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award for 2017-18.
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.
“It’s an honour and especially as it’s voted by the players. I am happy and proud,” 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 am happy and proud.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he was “happy to have the opportunity” of being Salah’s manager.
Salah has scored 31 goals in 33 league games for Jurgen Klopp’s free-scoring Liverpool side and leads the race for the Golden Boot.
