Mohamed Salah has been crowned the PFA Player of the Year after a remarkable debut season at Liverpool.
Luis Suarez was the last Liverpool player to win the award four years ago.
Salah 25, who is also in the running for the Golden boot award, was named Player of the Year at the 45th PFA Awards at Grosvenor House in central London on Sunday evening, having seen off tough competition from Kevin De Bruyne, Harry Kane, David de Gea, and David Silva.
“I feel great about that,” Salah said on the reception of his award. “You know I work hard and I’m very happy to win it.
“The team helped me a lot, the way we play, they help me, they pass the ball to me a lot, so the team helped me a lot honestly, to perform and be in that shape.
“Of course, the way we play is (credit) to the manager and the team, also the players pass the ball to me all the time and they always try to find me to give me the ball. The way we play is very nice for me.”
Meanwhile, Manchester City’s Leroy Sane won the PFA Young Player of the Year award, after scoring 13 goals in an exceptional campaign.
He beat off stiff competition from teammates Raheem Sterling and Ederson.
