Mohamed Salah has won the PFA Player of the Year for the second time in his career. The Egyptian gave an immediate reaction in a video.
Mohamed Salah is the 2021/22 PFA Player of the Year. It’s the second time he’s won the award, having also taken it home in 2018 after his record-breaking debut campaign with Liverpool.
This year, though, he was always a strong favourite after winning both the Golden Boot (jointly with Son Heung-Min) and the Playmaker award for the most assists. A fantastic year, then, as Salah dominated for the Reds.
And the PFA posted an immediate reaction from Salah on their Twitter account. The Egyptian says he deliberately saved space in his trophy cabinet for a second award.
“I have my room there and I have my trophy cabinet,” said Salah. “I made sure, to be fair, that I had another space for one more [PFA award].
“I always keep a space for something – the Golden Boot was the same. I kept two spaces for the Golden Boot. But I always like to keep a space and imagine that the trophy is going to go there.”
Mohamed Salah wins PFA Player of the Year
Well, doesn’t that just sum Salah up? He’s a player who consistently sets incredible targets for himself before going on to match them.
The Egyptian is simply one of a kind and Liverpool have a true legend in their ranks. Now they just need to hold onto him.
We know that Salah will stick around for at least one more year but his contract expires in 2023. Contract talks are ongoing and we’ll just have to see if the player and club can agree on terms.
Until then, all the focus can be on Salah as he tries to win a third PFA POTY award next season. We’re hardly going to put it past him – in fact, he’s already picking out the space.
