Liverpool: Salah tagets Champions League title after winning Player of the Year
Mohamed Salah continues dazzle in the Premier League and after being awarded the PFA Player of the Year award in London this week, he hopes he has room for one more trophy by the end of the season, a Champions League winners medal.
Liverpool tickets continue to be hot sellers and football fans from across the globe are flocking to Anfield and across Europe to watch Salah lead Liverpool towards a sixth European title.
Salah has been a sensation since swapping Roma for Anfield last summer in a £34.3million transfer and against West Brom on Saturday he struck his 31st Premier League goal of the campaign, tying the record for a 38-game season with three games remaining.
The Liverpool No.11 has scored 41 goals in all competitions, further complimented with thirteen assists. It has been a season to remember for Salah who has picked up most awards on offer this season in his first season on Merseyside. He beat Kevin de Bruyne, Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, David Silva and David de Gea in the vote by his fellow players to claim the PFA Player of the Year and not many could complain about the outcome.
As well as being selected in the PFA Team of the Year, he has claimed the Liverpool Player of the Month award six times, six Liverpool Goal of the Month awards and African Footballer of the Year. However, the Egypt international is hoping to add one more title to his collection by the end of the season which will be determined on 26th May in Kiev, Ukraine. It is a tough ask and with only Roma standing in their way of a trip to another memorable European night, a UEFA Champions League Final is within reach.
Liverpool host Roma in the first leg of their semi-final this week and Salah's dream is to follow up the recognition he has received from his peers by lifting silverware in Europe.
He said: "My personal ambition is to win something with the team. I always think about the team, I don't think about myself. The most important thing is to win something with the team and we're very close now with the semi-final. Hopefully we're going to win.
"The team has helped me a lot because of the way we play. They pass me the ball a lot and always try to find me."
He added: "It's an honour and especially as it's voted by the players. I am happy and proud. I didn't have my chance at Chelsea. It was clear I would return and show everyone my football. I think I left and came back a different person, man and player."
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he was "happy to have the opportunity" of being Salah's manager and added it was an "unbelievable honour" to win the award. "It's been a fantastic ride but we still have games to go," Klopp said.
Salah was recognised at the 45th PFA Awards at Grosvenor House in central London on Sunday evening after taking the vote ahead of Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne. Leroy Sane - named Young Player of the Year - and David Silva were also City players on the six-man shortlist, with outstanding Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Tottenham striker Harry Kane completing the nominees.
The Liverpool forward will be hoping it is not the last piece of silverware he will be lifting this season as he looks to cap off what has already been a remarkable season. Buy your Liverpool tickets now to watch Salah and his team-mates in action before the end of the campaign.
