Salah wins FSF Men’s Player of the Year award

The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, Britain - April 21, 2018 Liverpool's Mohamed Salah celebrates scoring their second goal

Liverpool's winger, Mohamed Salah, has been named the Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) Player of the Year during a ceremony held on Monday night in London. 

The Egyptian footballer has been nominated for the award alongside his teammate in Liverpool Virgil Van Dijk, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Harry Maguire of Leicester City. 

“Usually I share any awards with my teammates and all the staff at Liverpool, but on this occasion I would also like to dedicate it to the Liverpool fans for their incredible support. Thank you,” Salah told the press. 

The award has been presented since 2013 and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was the first player to win it. 

During his first season with Liverpool, Salah was phenomenal and had a magnificent season at the Premier League and Champions League, scoring 44 goals in all competitions, 32 of which were scored in the PL, which made him lead the top scorers’ list. 


He also led Liverpool to the UEFA Champions League final for the first time since 2007 but he was injured during the first half and watched his team lose the final 3-1 to Real Madrid.
