In England, the Egyptian Mohamed Salah has been nominated by the professional association of footballers, best player of the year 2018. A trophy that rewards a breathtaking season with his club, Liverpool.
He is irresistible Mohamed Salah. Since the beginning of the season in August 2017, and this first match of Premier League against Watford, where he had opened his goal counter. On April 20, the 25-year-old Egyptian scored again on day 35.
The winger is 31 goals in the Premier League. A total that he still hopes to inflate during the last three days, including history to beat the record of achievements (all competitions) on a season in the “Reds” established by Ian Rush, with 47 goals in 1983-1984.
This trophy of the best player of the Championship is unanimous. Mohamed Salah ahead of Kevin De Bruyne the Manchester City Belgian and Harry Kane the English striker Tottenham. He is the second African after the Algerian Riyad Mahrez (2016) to receive this prestigious distinction.
We compare it to Lionel Messi
The “Pharaoh” arrived in Liverpool last summer from Italian club Roma. Under the orders of Jürgen Klopp, the German technician, he crossed a new course. He is the custodian of the Liverpool game, with main fellow, the Senegalese Sadio Mané.
Some do not hesitate to compare it to Lionel Messi, the Argentinian. In fact, the one who was also voted African Player of the Year 2017 has a confusing game, lightning starts and he puts goals in shambles.
He will return to his former club AS Roma, in the semifinals of the European Cup (Champions League) . And, in June, he will spearhead Egypt at the 2018 World Cup (June 14-July 15 in Russia).
