Alan Shearar believes Salah should win Player of the Year award
The man that won Premier League Player of the Year back in 1994-95 backs Salah to win the award although he believes Manchester City’s Belgian midfielder has been sensational too.
“Nobody could have predicted he would have been as red hot as he has been when Liverpool signed him last summer,” Shearer wrote in his column via The Sun.
“In fact, there were one or two eyebrows raised when the Reds paid £34.3 million for him, even if that was more because of how his time at Chelsea had gone.
“But he would now get my vote for Player of the Year.
“I said I would wait to see what happened in Liverpool’s Champions League game with Manchester City before I hung my hat on Salah or Kevin De Bruyne for that award.
“But with what Salah did in those two ties, scoring his goals and pulling his team through to the semi-final, he would now be my pick.
“De Bruyne has also been magnificent and he was again on Saturday against Tottenham.
“But I realise how difficult it is to score goals and that’s why I would give it to Salah, who now has 40 in all competitions for Liverpool.”
Shearer won the Golden Boot before on three previous occasions, however his best tally since the league started to be played in 38 games was 31 goals. Salah is now only one goal away from equaling the record of Newcastle’s legend.
