Mohamed Salah, a Liverpool attacker, has been named the PFA Player of the Year after an outstanding season with the Reds.
Salah defeated Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, Liverpool teammates Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk, Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, and Tottenham’s Harry Kane to earn the honor.
Salah had a fantastic season, scoring 23 goals in the Premier League, but he was unable to lead Liverpool to the title, as they finished second to City.
The 29-year-old also had the most assists this season, with 13, earning him the Premier League’s playmaker accolade.
Salah joins Mark Hughes, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Gareth Bale, Ronaldo, Lucy Bronze, De Bruyne, and Fran Kirby as the only players in PFA award history to win two Players’ Player titles.
