Former Roma, Spurs star: Why Salah should join Real Madrid

Former Roma, Spurs star: Why Salah should join Real Madrid

The Egypt worldwide beat Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the award after an incredible debut season in which he has netted 31 goals in the Premier League - only the fourth player to do so - and looks likely to win the Golden Boot.

Salah, who moved to Anfield from Roma last June for a club record fee of £36.9m, has scored 41 goals in his debut season as Jürgen Klopp's side have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Salah matched a Premier League record tally for a single season (38 matches) by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has eulogized Egyptian midfielder Mohammed Salah for his performance in the English Premier League.

"He's a fantastic player, obviously he's up there with the world's best and there will be other clubs that want to take him away", said Henderson.

There was an element of sheer self-belief in his words after receiving his award, nearly as though he knew back in August that this would happen.

"In a democracy the players who have played against him have voted for him".




This isn't just a reward for success, though: Rowky has stressed that while Salah's talent makes him an ambassador, his manners, public personality and many charitable acts also allow him to serve as a fine messenger for Islam in the UK.

De Bruyne has indeed been influential for Pep Guardiola's side during their romp to the championship, with the Belgian playmaker making more decisive contributions this term than in his previous two seasons at City.

"The work he does off the ball is unbelievable, although I certainly wouldn't have enjoyed playing against Salah".

Since his return to the Premier League at the start of the season, Salah has broken several records, including that of Didier Drogba, who until not so long ago, was the only African player to have scored 29 league goals in one season. However, Salah requested that the team be represented at the awards so that he could share the honour with them. It's great, but the season is not finished so far.

Sane did, however, win the Young Player of the Year award while Fran Kirby of Chelsea Ladies was named women's Player of the Year at London's Grosvenor House hotel. "We play on Tuesday!" With three games left, he seems sure to surpass the Uruguayan. We both have the chance to go to the final - and that's all I need.

During his time at Stamford Bridge he only made 13 Premier League appearances, scoring just twice.
