Liverpool: Salah can consider himself lucky to beat De Bruyne for POTY

Liverpool: Salah can consider himself lucky to beat De Bruyne for POTY

The Egyptian has scored 41 goals so far in a tremendous debut season for the Reds, and was awarded the PFA "Player of the Year" award at the weekend.

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

"As great an honour as this is, I am sure De Bruyne would rather have a Premier League medal around his neck", he said.

"Salah's a great guy and I'm so happy for him because he was so determined to take his career and move with it".

Salah, who also plays for Egypt's national team, has quickly become a darling of the English football community. This is Liverpool's first opportunity in nine years to claim the most prized trophy in European football. "I always think about the team, I don't think about myself, so the most important thing for me is to win something with the team", he added.

The reigning UEFA Champions League holders are said to be looking at several players, and have earmarked two Premier League stars to replace two of their own.

"Obviously the manager's helped him loads since he's come to Liverpool, the players have been brilliant around him, so he's had a good group of lads that he's come into and that'll have helped him develop as well".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned the club's fans not to repeat the scenes that saw windows of Manchester City's team bus smashed by thrown cans and bottles ahead of their Champions League semifinal, first leg against Roma at Anfield on Tuesday.

Back in 1999, Tottenham winger David Ginola scooped both awards before the end of the season, but by the time the dust had settled on that campaign, Manchester United had won the Treble and none of their players had been honoured with an individual award. "I think we overpaid", and I said "I'll buy you lunch", Pallotta told ESPN.

It meant he equalled the best return across a 38-Premier League season.

"Being an African, I take a lot of pride in the fact that another African has emerged as such a big star in the PL".

We're going to do our best to win the Champions League'.

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.
