“I’m very happy, it’s an honour to win this award,” he said. “It was always in my mind to come back to the Premier League to show the people that say I didn’t succeed here the first time.”
Salah also paid tribute to manager Jurgen Klopp and thanked him for helping him to shine this season.
“Before everything, we are friends, I like him a lot,” he said. “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.
“But [there are] still two games, we have to think about that. I really, really respect him a lot and I’m sure we are going to do something special for the club this year.”
The former Roma player, who was also named the PFA Player of the Year and the FWA’s Football of the Year for 2017-18 earlier this season, becomes the third Liverpool player to win it after Michael Owen and Luis Suarez.
