After being named Fans’ Player of the Season last month, Mo Salah has now added the 2022 PFA Players’ Player of the Year award to his mantlepiece.
“It’s a great honour to win a trophy, individual or collective and this one is big so, very happy and very proud of that,” said the Egyptian king.
“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.
“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.”
“When you get older, you feel like you’re more stable and you know exactly what you want from football so I’m just trying to really chill and help the team. That’s why I think I also won the playmaker because it’s like you’re more aware of the game, so you just try to make the people next to you better and try to make yourself better as well.”
Not only that, but six Liverpool players were named in the PFA Team of the Season too. Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah dominated the XI.
It’s clear acknowledgement of the achievements of Jurgen Klopp’s team this season, dominating the domestic cups, reaching the Champions League final and narrowly missing out on the Premier League title on the final day of the season.
They played a maximum 63 games over the season and deserve the credit that they are being given in these end-of-season awards.
Let’s hope we can go two further next season and win the lot.
