Mohamed Salah arrived at Liverpool for £37.1 million last summer, but that fee is looking like one of the bargains of the season.
The Egyptian winger has been unbelievable. He’s shattered record after record throughout the season, almost scoring goals at will.
Many consider the PFA Player of the Year award to be a two-horse race between Salah and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne. But even the Belgian midfielder thinks that Salah is the more worthy winner.
“I voted for Salah for footballer of the year because he deserves it,” De Bruyne explained. “If it’s nobody from our team I think Salah deserves it.
“I don’t look at what happened before I don’t know how to pick anyone else other than Salah if I can’t pick someone from my team.
“I don’t know if he would vote for me, I’m fair you know, if he wins he wins.
“He is up there with Kane, me and David (Silva) for me. They are the four best players of this year consistently. I’m honest with my voting, he deserves it, if other people don’t do it I don’t mind.”
JOHN ARNE RIISE ON SALAH
Salah has terrorised many defenders throughout the season with his pace and trickery, and he was at his imperious best against Manchester City on Wednesday night.
After a first half performance where he notched a goal and an assist, and terrorised Aymeric Laporte throughout, former Liverpool player John Arne Riise was asked by a fan how he would deal with Salah.
And his response was priceless.
The 37-year-old responded: “Faked an injury and ruled me out of the game.”

That might be the only way to deal with Salah given how unstoppable he is.
