The women’s title was won by Australian Chelsea player Sam Kerr
For the second time in his career, Egyptian Mohamed Salah was chosen yesterday as the “best player” in the current season of the English Premier League. This was the choice of the Sports Journalists Association in England in recognition of the role he plays with his team, Liverpool.
Salah received 48 percent of the votes of the members of the League, ahead of Manchester City midfielders, Belgian star Kevin De Bruyne and West Ham United, Declan Rice.
It is noteworthy that the 29-year-old Egyptian player, who previously won this title in 2018, has not yet decided his future with Liverpool in order to extend his contract, which expires next year, but the two parties are still in the process of negotiations to extend the period of stay of the “Pharaoh” with the “Reds”. Where he has been playing since 2017. In an interview with the British magazine “Forforto”, last week, Salah admitted that he still does not know whether he will extend his contract, or not. He added, “I only have one year left on my contract. I think the fans know what I want, but it’s not about money in the new decade.” He continued, “So I don’t know. I cannot tell you exactly.”
Salah has become one of the best players in the world since joining Liverpool in 2017 from Roma, where he has scored 155 goals in 247 games so far. The year 2020 was one of the key players in Liverpool’s crowning of its first Premier League title in thirty years, a year after it also contributed to winning the Champions League. He said that Liverpool “means a lot to me. I gave everything to the club and everyone noticed that.” “I had a great time here, winning titles and winning a lot of individual awards. This club is like family to me.”
The association also chose Australian player Sam Kerr for the title of “Player of the Year”. Kerr, whose 18 goals she scored for Chelsea in the Women’s Super League have helped catapult the club to the top of the Women’s Super League, garnered the votes of 40 per cent of the League’s members.
