De Bruyne admits Salah deserves PFA Player of the Year
Salah’s fellow PFA Player of the Year frontunning contender has admitted that the Egyptian deserves to win the award following his incredible individual season with Liverpool.
In yesterday’s announcement, it was revealed who was nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award – Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, David De Gea, David Silva, Harry Kane and Leroy Sane. It should be remembered that the award does not just take Premier League performances into account, but also in various cup competitions both domestically and at a European Level.
For large parts of the season, De Bruyne had been favourite to win the award although the Belgian has suffered a slight decline in form, whereas Salah has only gone from strength to strength.
In an interview with NBC, the 26 year old midfielder said “Yeah, I think if you can choose nobody from our team, I think he [Salah] deserves it, probably he’s going to win it anyway.”
“He’s been remarkable and to compete with somebody that’s scored that many goals, you’re not going to win. I’m very satisfied with my performances this year, with the team.”
De Bruyne went on to add that his own personal vote has been effected by the rules, as he is unable to vote for a teammate. “For me, I think if I could vote personally, I would vote for David. The situation he had this year with his little son and been always away, no training, and performed the way he did, it’s been incredible. But if Salah get it, he deserves it as well.”
The winner of the award is scheduled to be announced on April 22nd, with Salah vying to be the first ever African born winner.
