Liverpool's Salah, Kirby named PFA players of the year

Mohamed Salah

Arsenal legend Martin Keown aimed a sly dig at Liverpool star Mohamed Salah after his PFA Player of the Year win on Sunday night.

The captian also praised the impact of manager Jürgen Klopp on the team, describing him as a coach who strikes the ideal balance between personality and determination.

Leroy Sane (Manchester City) won the award for best young player, Fran Kirby (Chelsea) won the prize for best female footballer, while Lauren Hemp was named best young female player.

The 41-goal forward faces his old club for the first time since his £38million move last summer as Anfield hosts the opening leg of their Champions League semi-final - the Reds' first for a decade. "Over the last few years I know for a fact that he has been approached by some of the biggest clubs in the world - I think Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, the England national team wanted him at one stage".

Guinea worldwide Keita will finally move to Anfield this summer, but the fee Liverpool must pay has yet to be decided, reports The Times.

Salah also became the seventh Liverpool player to win the award in the club's history. 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.

"In Europe, Liverpool are playing extremely well".

Sunny with Breezy North Winds
Highs the rest of the day will hit the low 40s, and lows will once again topple to the upper 30s late tonight . Winds will stay breezy, around 10 to 20 miles per hour with overcast skies and lows in the mid 50s.

"Everyone can see that we've improved a lot and have taken the next step".

Suarez won the award, and also scored 31 league goals, back in 2013/14, when he nearly single-handedly dragged Liverpool to the title.

"I think I left then I came back as different person, man, player, as I said, I didn't have my chance [at Chelsea]".

"The Premier League has fantastic players and I'm really honoured to receive the award", said Sane. They're based off a full season where City have scored 18 more goals than Liverpool, Aguero and Kane have scored a combined 17 more than Bobby and where Jurgen Klopp's men - despite all the excitement and well timed form - could still be six points behind bloody United by the end of the week. "But I feel we've got experience in our side, too, maybe not as much as him, but I feel we are ready to go and challenge".

"To some extent, it surprises me that [Salah] has been doing so well in his first season at Liverpool", Totti told Liverpool's official website.

"The most important thing is to win something with the team and we're very close now with the semi-final".
