◼️ Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah, Liverpool striker, made history on Friday by winning for the third time this season the best player of the month in the Premier League.
Salah, 25, has been crowned as the most prominent player in the English league in November, February and March, and becomes the first and only footballer to conquer it three times in a single campaign.
“Winning this trophy again feels very good, last month we got very good results and that’s the most important thing”, declared the ‘pharaoh’ after winning the prize.
The African striker, who has scored 29 goals so far in the league, has a shot record in a Premier League course held by Alan Shearer (1995/1996), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/2008) and Luis Suarez ( 2013/2014), with 31.
“I feel very proud to be fighting to break that record, I think game by game, and that’s my only goal, I want to score goals, but I also want to help the team win”, said Salah.
The Liverpool player, author of six goals in four games in March, won the vote, made in conjunction with the votes of a panel of experts, captains of Premier League teams and fans, to Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), David Silva (Manchester City), Cenk Tosun (Everton) and Chris Wood (Burnley).
