Liverpool ace wins writers' footballer of the year award

After failing to originally impress with Chelsea, Salah returned to English football last summer when Liverpool committed £39million to sign him from Roma and has since scored a record-equalling 31 goals in the Premier League alone.

The Egyptian has enjoyed an incredible debut season at Anfield, scoring 43 times in all competitions.

You need options when you win the ball and that's what Mo is doing pretty well and is why we changed the system at [Manchester] City in the first half [of the Champions League quarter-final second leg].

Fans of Egyptian superstar Salah took pictures in Nagrig of Ahmed Bahaa, a 30-year-old business graduate who met the PFA Player of the Year in 2016.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was in third place.

"It's been the tightest call since 1968/69, when there was a dead heat between Tony Book of Manchester City and Derby's Dave Mackay", FWA chief Patrick Barclay said.

Other players to receive votes from FWA members this year were: Sergio Aguero (Man City), Christian Eriksen (Tottenham), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Nick Pope (Burnley), David Silva (Manchester City), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) and Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham).

You know you've hit the big-time when you've got your own doppelganger and Mo Salah now has his own back home in Egypt.

And former Liverpool FC star Carragher has admitted that he rates Firmino as possibly the Reds' most important player, ahead of Salah.

"We've had a great season now and we have to think about the next two games in the Premier League, then the Champions League".

He also looks set to win the Golden Boot award to cap a stunning campaign on Merseyside.

"Unfortunately, there's been a history of player sales and that's just how the football club is - but I really don't see it at all", he told the Daily Express.
