The Pharaoh of Liverpool is one of the great architects of the current success of his club, in the race to achieve a fabulous quadruple (League Cup, English Cup, Champions League and English championship). This season, he is actually the top scorer (22 goals) and the top passer in the Premier League (13).
In all competitions, Salah has scored 30 goals, and Liverpool fans are hoping he will extend his contract with the club until 2023. This is the second time the 29-year-old has won the award.
Unsurprisingly, the players of the Premier League leader Manchester City and its runner-up Liverpool have been voted for by the journalists of the kingdom.
