'Salah was always special' - Bradley reflects on Liverpool star's progress

'Salah was always special' - Bradley reflects on Liverpool star's progress

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

"So with Dzeko there, it changed a lot of how Salah would be used, and they figured out how to use him a little differently and he's much more in the middle it seems like".

"As great an honour as this is, I am sure De Bruyne would rather have a Premier League medal around his neck", he said. "I've worked hard and I'm very happy to win it", Salah said at the ceremony on Sunday evening.

And when City don't have the ball, he does everything we typically forgive players like him for not doing, hassling and harrying and pressing and tackling and so on.

As for Pallotta, he was surprisingly accepting of letting the prodigious goalscorer go, citing that Salah felt he had unfinished business in England after a previous failed spell with Chelsea a few years prior.

Liverpool will do battle with the 25-year-old's former club Roma in the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night and the player is desperate to guide the Reds to glory.




"But, on the other hand, considering the quality of the squad, the coach they have - Klopp, to me, is one of the best coaches in the world - it didn't surprise me".

Salah was voted the PFA player of the year after a stellar season with Liverpool in which he has scored an incredible 41 goals in all competitions.

But City winger Leroy Sane was voted PFA young player of the year.

Salah scored his first Liverpool goal in their 3-3 draw with Watford on the opening day and added further goals against Hoffenheim in the Champions League and Arsenal in the Premier League.

'Before it's pointed out, I'm well aware that Salah has to do it for many years before he can be spoken of as one of the all-time great, ' the former Arsenal striker wrote in The Sun. I didn't have my (chance) in Chelsea so it was clear in my mind I would come back and show everyone my focus.

In what has been arguably a two-horse race since the turn of the year, Salah's achievements have seen him take the crown ahead of Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne. In short, and with due respect to David Silva, that ageless genius, De Bruyne is the best player on the best team in the country.
