Henderson fired up for battle against 'fantastic leader' De Rossi

Mohamed Salah named PFA Player of the Year ahead of Kevin De Bruyne

Mohamed Salah named PFA Player of the Year ahead of Kevin De Bruyne

The 25-year-old Egyptian forward, who plies his trade for Liverpool in the English Premier League, beat Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Tottenham's Harry Kane and Manchester United's David de Gea in the votes by his fellow players. "I am happy and proud", Salah said.

"It's an honour to win this award especially because it was voted for by the other players", said Salah.

But Klopp has demanded the Egypt star keeps his focus, as he prepares for a date with his former club Roma in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday.

"To play with fantastic players like we have in our team is great".

But he will be seen as pivotal if Liverpool are to progress in the Champions League semi-finals against Roma.

Salah's then club-record move was questioned at the time of the deal coming just two years after he had failed to make an impression in the Premier League with Chelsea.

Salah became the first person in Premier League history to claim three Player of the Month awards in the same season, winning it in November, February and March, and was the only member of Liverpool's squad to be named in the PFA Team of the Year.

"You can't really jump the gun", says Rush who was in Dublin on Monday morning to promote the summer friendly between Liverpool and Napoli at the Aviva stadium on August 4th. The former AS Roma man will be hoping to build on his exploits at club level when Egypt take part in this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Yes, I think from the first day I left the Premier League it was always in my mind", he said.

"Maybe there are guys with numbers better than him but for me in the team that wins (the title) with five games to go, he was the best".

'It's what you dream about as a kid - playing against the best teams in Europe.

The Algeria global was honoured as the division's best after playing an inspirational role in Leicester City's unlikely 2016 Premier League success.

"He obviously doesn't score as many goals as Mo Salah, but he's very important for Manchester City, for the way they play, and he creates a lot of goals from the midfield". We just put on a similar if not better performance than Man City and hopefully we can get to the final.
