Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah was elected the best player of the 2017-2018 Premier League season on Sunday, April 22, 2018.
Egypt’s Mohamed Salah has been outstanding since the start of the season in the Premier League. He has not stopped collecting individual awards. These efforts paid off, and so did the English Players Association (PFA) on Sunday bestowing him the title of best player in the English league.
Mohamed Salah succeeds N’Golo Kanté, who won the title with Chelsea last season. Before coming to Liverpool, Mohamed had played at Arab Contractor’s, then at FC Basel (Switzerland), Chelsea (England), Fiorentina and AS Roma (Italy).
CAF President Ahmad congratulated the Egyptian player on his nomination for the 2017/18 season. At 26, he became the first player of African descent to be so distinguished.
The former Chelsea player scored 41 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool. Author of 31 goals this season, he is equal to the performances of Alan Shearer (1996) Cristiano Ronaldo (2008) and Luis Suarez (2014).
Salah is preparing to lead the Pharaohs of Egypt in their first World Cup in 28 years. We wish them the best!
