On Sunday night, everybody's favourite footballer Mohamed "Mo" Salah picked up the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) player of the year for the 2017-18 season.

Mohamed Salah's record-breaking season continues to amaze everyone as he is now the Premier League top scorer with 31 league goals, equaling the record for the most league goals scored in a single 38-game season with three games remaining in the current season.

Mohamed Salah earns the Premier League's Player of the Year award with his feat of 41 goals in 46 appearances.

Salah saw off a list that also included De Bruyne's team mates Leroy Sane and David Silva, Tottenham's Harry Kane and Manchester United's David de Gea, as he became only the second-ever African to win the award.

And, of course, the Italian side have a better idea than most about stopping Salah, having him on their books for two seasons, the first on loan from Chelsea, before his £38m move to Liverpool before the start of the current campaign.

"I'm happy for the award and [for] my team-mates and what we're doing in the Champions League".

"[I'm] proud of him and of every Egyptian who raises Egypt's name high", the president added in a brief post accompanied by a photo of Salah carrying the trophy.

"Salah has impressed more people in the game, that's a matter of fact". He's the first African player to score [40] goals for Liverpool.

The president met Tuesday in the Oval Office with Jackson, a White House official confirmed to NPR. Jackson chooses to proceed, however, saying that is all part of the vetting process.

Kevin De Bruyne is this year's biggest loser (though the Premier League title will no doubt be a welcome consolation).

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

"Everyone said when Coutinho left, "Liverpool won't be as good a team" but they seem to have kicked on", said Gale.

While not unexpected given his stunning debut season at Anfield, Salah faced strong competition from the Belgium global De Bruyne, who has been the standout player for the champions. "I always think about the team, I don't think about myself", Salah said.

Social media, too, was awash with posts of praise for a player whose sniper's calm in front of goal has elevated his team to another level.

The Belgian looked like the only realistic choice for the award through the first half of the season, but Salah's form since the turn of the year inspired a re-think.

To date, he's scored eight and contributed 15 assists in 34 Premier League outings, with no player in the division creating more goals for their teammates.

After scoring only five times last term, Sane has played his part in a scintillating City attack, scoring nine times and notching 12 assists, nearly doubling his tally in both categories.
