Mohamed Salah has been awarded Liverpool's Standard Chartered Men's Player of the Season after winning the poll that is voted on by the supporters.

Salah came out first with Fabinho finishing second and Nathaniel Phillips snatching third place.

The Egyptian has by far been Liverpool's most important player this season. When everybody else dropped off, Salah put the team on his back and dragged The Reds to a Champions League place.

The 28-year-old ended the season on 31 goals in 51 appearances, spanning over all competitions this season. 

After receiving the news that he had won Liverpool's Player of the Season, Salah had this to say to LiverpoolFC.com“Of course, I’m happy to win this award, especially as it is voted for by fans, but winning our final games and qualifying for the Champions League was the most important thing.

“I think I have played OK this season, but it’s not about me – it’s about the team.

“For us as a team, I think if we’d had the fans in the stadium, our position, our situation, would have been much better. We suffered a lot this season with missing the fans.

“So I am happy in the last game of the season we played with our fans. It was great to see them back in the stadium.”  

Even though Salah scored plenty of stunning goals this season and had some brilliant moments himself, he was asked what his moment of the season was and the Egyptian responded with a surprising answer. 

“The highlight of the season was Ali’s goal! I can’t say anymore,” he said, in reference to Alisson Becker’s 95th-minute winning header at West Bromwich Albion recently.

“It was unbelievable. As I said, it’s about the team and the reaction to the goal… I didn’t even think about it, I was jumping. That was the moment when I felt like we were going to play in the Champions League next season.

“The last ball in the game, it was an unbelievable moment and I was so happy for him.

“It was a really great header, not expected. Unbelievable. He did a great job and got us the three points.”

Finally Salah had a message to the supporters who voted him Player of the Season, “I want to say thank you very much for voting for me, I’m very proud about that and I will see you soon.”

A great message by Liverpool's star man Mohamed Salah, hopefully Liverpool supporters get to see many more amazing seasons by the Egyptian in a Liverpool shirt.
