Mohamed Salah named PFA Premier League player of the year

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane races past Roma’s Radja Nainggolan in their Champions League semifinal second leg. More

Egyptian and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was crowned the 2017/18 Premier League Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) after his spectacular ongoing 41-goal debut season. Tottenham striker Harry Kane came in third.

The 25-year-old, who was signed for £34m from Roma, is the first Egyptian to win the award, presented at Grosvenor House in central London on Sunday evening.

He said on Sunday: "My personal ambition is to win something with the team".

"I would like to thank my teammates and everyone at the club for helping me to make this happen".

"There are these games against Roma and I think the one against them tomorrow will most likely be the most important one because if you look at the last two ties, they've gone through on away goals so I think we've got to stop Roma from scoring. Obviously I played for Juventus and deep down I'd like to see them win but I think it's Napoli who have the easier run in so I think it's going to be very interesting".

Bristol City's Lauren Hemp was named Women's Young Player of the Year.

Cyrille Regis' contribution to the game was recognised with a posthumous Merit award from the PFA.

Klopp says the fact he pipped De Bruyne to the award highlights just how special his form has been.

"I came up the stairs at Manchester City and someone told me Roma won 3-0". "If he doesn't win, then congrats to the guy that wins", he said.

The pair have been the standout players of a memorable campaign, with the Belgium worldwide playing an integral role as Pep Guardiola's swashbuckling side won the Premier League in style.

"Maybe there are better numbers but for me he was the best". He was apparently one of the top three players, but not one of the top 11. "But in the end, in the summertime, we will be at home being champions".

Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has thanked boss Pep Guardiola for his remarkable season, calling him "the best coach in the world".

He has been out of this world this season, and he is a deserved victor of the PFA Player of the Year award. "We've improved every season and done brilliant this season to get this stage".

There's no way of knowing exactly how things would have changed if City faced a real title challenge, or if you flipped the second half of their league season with the first.

"The team lives from personalities, from characters, from players and I am really happy that I had the opportunity to be your manager in the a year ago". "They are all really good guys and we work really hard".
