Salah pips Moses, others to win BBC award

Salah pips Moses, others to win BBC award

The Premier League top scorer - with 13 - won the award for his electric start to his Reds career, scoring 19 goals in all competitions in a mere 24 matches, as well as his exploits for Egypt.

Salah beat a star-studded cast of rivals to become the third Egyptian to win the award and first since Mohamed Aboutrika picked up the gong in 2008.

However the favourite could be the English Premier League's top-scorer, Mohamed Salah, who plays for Liverpool and the Egypt national team.

"I would also like to win it next year".

Egypt - African champions a record seven times - had not reached a World Cup since 1990, but the 25-year-old scored from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time with the scores level at 1-1.

'I would like to win this award also next year, ' Salah told BBC Sport after receiving his award.

"I work hard and try to be different from them".

Salah won the highest vote in the popular referendum on the official website ahead of Gabon's Pierre Emeric Obamyang, Guinea's Nabi Keita, Senegal's Sadio Mane and Niger's Victor Moses.

Reacting to Salah's feat, manager Jurgen Klopp says the award was a deserved one for the former Chelsea forward.

While Salah has made a name for himself at Liverpool since his summer move from Roma, his biggest achievement to date came for his country.

'The good thing is that he is still young, there is a lot of space for improvement, a lot of potential still that we can work on, but that's how it should be.
