Mohamed Salah has been crowned the PFA Men’s Player of the Year. Liverpool star Salah won the Premier League Golden Boot, alongside Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, and has now lifted the PFA award for a second time.
The Egyptian also registered the most assists in the English top flight last season, with 13 to his name. Salah first won the award in the 2017/18 season.
He beat Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, who was second in the voting. De Bruyne had lifted the trophy for the previous two seasons.
Cristiano Ronaldo was among the nominees, 14 years after he lost won the award. Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane were also in the running.
On winning the award, Salah spoke of his delight to have been voted by his peers. He told the PFA website: “It’s a great honour to win a trophy, individual or collective and this one is big so, very happy and very proud of that.
“This one is a really good one to win, especially because it’s voted by players. It shows you that you’ve worked really hard and you get what you worked for.
“I have my room with trophies in a cabinet and I made sure that I had another space for one more. I always keep space and just try to imagine that the trophies are going to come.”
Liverpool missed out on the Premier League title on a dramatic final day as City pipped them to top spot. Salah says he has matured as a player, which was shown in his creativity this season.

He added: “When you get older, you feel like you’re more stable and you know exactly what you want from football so I’m just trying to really chill and help the team.
“That’s why I think I also won the playmaker because it’s like you’re more aware of the game, so you just try to make the people next to you better and try to make yourself better as well.”
