Liverpool star Salah to be rewarded big in Mecca

Salah attended Sunday's awards ceremony with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson has praised Mohamed Salah's desire to improve after the Liverpool forward was named PFA Players' Player of the Year.

The talented forward beat out Kevin De Bruyne to win the award after a season in which he has contributed 31 goals and 10 assists in the top flight.

"Being an African, I take a lot of pride in the fact that another African has emerged as such a big star in the [Premier League]".

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has congratulated Egyptian football player Mohamed Salah, who plays for the English club Liverpool, for winning the English Premier League's best-player award earlier this week.

Speaking to host, Manish Bhasin, Salah touches on his time as a Chelsea player, where he failed to make an impact in the Premier League. He is also the only African player with the most goals.

He has 43 goals in all competitions this season and was voted the best player in the Premier League by his fellow players.

Salah was rewarded for his performances which have yielded 41 goals in all competitions since joining from AS Roma past year, helping Liverpool reach the Champions League semi-finals and secure a likely top-four finish in the Premier League.

Goals Roma striker Edin Dzeko has scored in the Champions League this season.

The Roma icon told Liverpool's official website ahead of a Champions League semi-final clash between two European heavyweights: "This season I've seen a number of games of Liverpool, especially because Mo Salah is now playing there, I've been following it consistently".

Egyptians have such a hung up over Salah to the extent that they actually added his name in to the ballot box in the 2018 Presidential Election, with more than one million Egyptians voting for him.

"The most important thing is to win something with the team and we're very close now with the [Champions League] semi-final".

The Liverpool star has those 41 scores in 46 appearances this season.

After his first strike against his former club on Tuesday, the man dubbed by fans as the "Egyptian King" stood motionless, hands raised in apology, as bedlam broke out on a night for the ages at Anfield.

"I feel as though I've improved a lot since he came to the football club and hopefully I can improve a lot more over the next few years".
