The PFA Player of the Year has been announced, and it is Mohamed Salah claiming the prize after an explosive first season at Liverpool. He narrowly edged Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne for the award, so fans used Twitter to express their thoughts.

Salah Claims The PFA player of the year award

Few could have foreseen the Egyptian magician’s impact after he swapped Roma for Anfield last summer in a £34.3million deal. It has certainly proven money well spent and Salah’s exceptional performances have brought recognition from his peers in his first season back in English football.

The 25-year-old was named Player of the Year at the 45th PFA Awards at Grosvenor House in central London on Sunday evening, having seen off tough competition from Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.

The pair has been the standout players of a memorable campaign, but it is Salah that has come out on top after one of the greatest debut campaigns in Liverpool’s history.

“It’s a big honor. I’ve worked hard and I’m very happy to win it,” Salah said at the ceremony on Sunday evening.

However, some fans still state “If the best player in the best team isn’t deserving of the award, who is?”, referring to Kevin De Bruyne.
