Salah Beats De Bruyne To Football Writers Best Player Award

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes the exceptional goalscoring form Mohamed Salah is down to how much he has grown.

The Egypt global has scored 43 times in all competitions, including 31 in the Premier League to equal the record haul for a single 38-match season.

Tottenham's Harry Kane came third, while there were also votes for Sergio Aguero, Christian Eriksen, Roberto Firmino, Nick Pope, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Jan Vertonghen. He has 31 Premier League goals, and 43 in all competitions.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante won the award last year and Salah will be honoured at the Footballer of the Year dinner on May 10. He polled more than 90 percent of the FWA member votes.

Mohamed Salah has been voted the 2018 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association.

Salah is only the second non-European player to scoop the FWA prize after former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez - and the first African victor.

Salah will be hoping to impress on the European stage once again on Wednesday night when Liverpool take on his former employers Roma in the second leg of their semi-final tie.

Egypt are just over a month away from competing at the World Cup finals for the first time in 28 years and they will do well to stop the razzmatazz surrounding their top player spiralling out of control. But Mo Salah is the worthiest of winners.

FWA Chairman Patrick Barclay explained to Sky Sports News that the result was very close: "You judge a victory against the opposition and in particular from Kevin De Bruyne this season, it has been as good as it gets".

He also looks set to win the Golden Boot award to cap a stunning campaign on Merseyside.
