Klopp: De Bruyne's form makes Salah award 'even more special'

  • Mohamed Salah named PFA Player of the Year ahead of Kevin De Bruyne

"I'm very proud to win and I've worked very hard".

The Egypt global saw off competition from the Manchester City trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva to become the second African player to win the award after Riyad Mahrez of Leicester in 2016.

Salah is on track to break the Premier League's single-season goal record, as well as leading Liverpool to the Champions League semi-finals.

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

Guinea global Keita will finally move to Anfield this summer, but the fee Liverpool must pay has yet to be decided, reports The Times.

It is the first time a City player has won the award for 42 years - Peter Barnes landed it in 1975/76 - and Sane is the first German to hold the honour. The former AS Roma man will be hoping to build on his exploits at club level when Egypt take part in this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. "I always think about the team, I don't think about myself", he said ahead of the match.

He praised Salah for winning the PFA award, but added the "season is not finished yet" and warned Roma they would be facing "one of the most special atmospheres in world football".

De Rossi? What can I say?

His goalscoring prowess earned him five England caps, and helped Coventry win the FA Cup in 1987, but Regis is perhaps best known now as a pioneer for black players.

Salah is playing his best ever football in arguably the best league in the world, so why would he want to leave? "I'm pretty sure that we can score goals with the front three that we've got but I think it's important that we keep Roma from scoring at Anfield then hopefully we can go to Rome with something to play for".

Liverpool's 5-0 defeat to Manchester City in September could have gone differently, for example, not only if Sadio Mane had not been sent off but also had Salah taken some gilt-edged opportunities early on.

There's no way of knowing exactly how things would have changed if City faced a real title challenge, or if you flipped the second half of their league season with the first.

Salah has 41 goals in his first season for Liverpool. "We are in the semifinal and can go to the final".
