Mohamed Salah has collected the Players’ Player of the Season award at the Liverpool Players’ Awards ceremony on Thursday.

The Egypt international, who collected the Liverpool Player of the Month award seven times during the the 2017/18 campaign, added another award to his personal trophy collection.

He was named the Players’ Player of the Season at the club’s end-of-season awards ceremony after beating Roberto Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold. The 25-year-old was handed the award by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

Klopp opened the speaking at the ceremony as the players were introduced as the ‘2018 Champions League finalists.’

‘Football-wise, we’ve had fantastic moments,’ said the German.

‘A few games that were not that good, but I cannot remember that many… We were a little bit unlucky with some injuries in absolutely the wrong moments.’

The awards began with the presenting of Young Player of the Season, with the highly rated Trent Alexander-Arnold storming to victory with a heavy majority of votes.

It didn’t take long for Mohamed Salah to get himself on stage, scooping Players’ Player of the Season, much to the appreciation of his onlooking team-mates as Henderson presented the award.

Moments later the mercurial forward was back in the limelight after scooping the biggest award of the evening – Liverpool Football Club Player of the Season 2017/18.

Salah has put in impressive performances in his debut season at Liverpool, scoring 43 goals in 50 appearances across all competitions and collecting a host of prizes including the PFA Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award.

He’ll now focus on his team’s final league game on May 13 against Brighton before playing against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.
