Mohamed Salah was crowned the Premier League’s Players’ Player of the Year on Sunday.

Salah won the hearts of Liverpool fans with his incredible performance, netting 41-goal debut season, beating out strong competition from Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne.

Salah matched a Premier League record tally for a single season by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

Salah has also netted seven times in eight Champions League games, including in both legs of Liverpool’s 5-1 quarter-final thrashing of City, to carry his side to a first semifinal for a decade.

De Bruyne showed why he had been many people’s early-season favourite for the prize with an incredible long-range strike for his 12th goal of the season to go with a league-high number of assists as champions City thrashed Swansea 5-0 on Sunday.

Salah is now a famous Liverpool player.

Mohamed Salah has inspired a new chant among the Liverpool faithful, the BBC said. He is the Liverpool and Egypt forward.

“If he good enough for you, he is good enough for me. If he scores another few, then I’ll be Muslim too,”

“He’s sitting in a Mosque, that’s where I want to be,” said the song.

However, Salah, practising Muslims donates a fair share of his earnings to charity.

The football player replied to a tweet about the video ‘officially’ giving his seal of approval for the song!

On another note, Salah has warned Liverpool’s Premier League rivals that he is just getting warmed up.

His goal in Liverpool’s stunning 5-0 Champions League win over Porto in midweek saw the Egyptian achieve the feat in 36 games.

He is the quickest Reds player to reach the milestone in more than 100 years said Sky Sports.
