His performances in the 2017-2018 season have seen him win the Premier League Golden Boot and Player of the Season awards, CAF Footballer of the Year, PFA Players’ Player of the Year, FWA Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year, and many more.

And on Monday, he has received another individual accolade after being announced as the FSF Men’s Player of the Year during a ceremony in London.

The Egyptian was included in a six-man shortlist alongside teammate Virgil van Dijk, Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard of Chelsea and Leicester City’s Harry Maguire.

However, Salah managed to beat off competition from the other five after topping the fans’ poll that attracted more than 366,000 votes.

“Thank you for this award, it means so much to me because it was voted for by supporters,” Mohamed Salah said.

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