Back when Liverpool paid £36.9 million to sign Salah last June, nobody could have predicted that he would have such a major impact at Anfield.
Salah, who had an unsuccessful spell at Chelsea from 2014 to 2016, has scored 43 goals in 50 games in all competitions for Liverpool.
Each followers and a panel of specialists voted and emphatically agreed that Salah was the deserved victor, having scored greater than 30 Premier League targets in his first season at Anfield.
Indeed, Gary Lineker's tweet after Salah's latest achievement reflects that thought. The Egypt worldwide, who enjoyed an impressive season at Liverpool, praised his manager Jurgen Klopp saying that he played an important role in his development.
It feels like it's been that many, doesn't it? He can become a sole record holder if he scores in Liverpool's Sunday match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Collecting the award at Liverpool's Melwood training ground, Salah said: "I'm very happy, it's an honour to win this award".
Salah edges Harry Kane by three goals in the Golden Boot race and could also capture the Champions League title in a couple of weeks as Jurgen Klopp's men take on Real Madrid in Kiev. 'He has helped me a lot to do what I'm doing now, on the field and off it, I have to thank him for everything he has done this year.
