Egyptian international and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was named the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Player of the Year for the second time for his performance in the 2021/2022 season.

Salah, who shared this season’s Premier League golden boot for the top scorer with Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min, also won the award in the 2017-18 season.

The 29-year-old Egyptian scored 31 goals in all competitions for Liverpool and helped them win the FA Cup and the League Cup.

“This one is a really good one to win, especially because it’s voted by players. It shows you that you’ve worked really hard and you get what you worked for,” Salah said.

“I have my room with trophies in a cabinet and I made sure that I had another space for one more. I always keep space and just try to imagine that the trophies are going to come.”

PFA Young Player of the Year

Manchester City’s Phil Foden retained the Young Player of the Year award after a successful season with the Premier League champions.

England international Foden scored 9 goals and recorded 5 assists in the 2021/2022 season for Manchester City.

“I’m really honoured to be honest, especially to win it back-to-back, it’s just nice to look at and see how far you’ve come so, yeah, I’m really pleased,” Foden said.
