City's Sane named PFA Young Player of the Year

Luis Garcia Salah

The Egyptian has bagged 41 goals in all competitions, guided his team to the Champions League semi-finals and could yet break the record for most goals scored in a Premier League season.

The Liverpool forward beat off competition from Manchester City counterpart Kevin de Bruyne to scoop the accolade after an impressive debut year at Anfield.

Salah matched a Premier League record tally for a single season (38 matches) by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

Liverpool host Roma in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday and Salah's dream is to follow up the recognition he has received from his peers by lifting silverware in Europe.

Edin Dzeko, who played alongside Salah in the Roma attack, revealed recently that the pair had been in contact via text message ahead of the tie.

Manchester City forward Leroy Sané has been named PFA Young Player of the Year following a spectacular season with the Premier League champions.

De Bruyne came in second place while Kane was third.

"I certainly take nothing away from him for winning this award and we must respect the vote of our fellow professionals".

"It is really rare in football that you win as an individual, an individual trophy, because it is a team game", he said.

"This award is an unbelievable honour for you and your family to be proud of. If he [Kevin] doesn't win, congratulations to the guy who is going to win", Guardiola said.

De Bruyne will not end the campaign empty-handed, though, as he is set to collect the newly created Premier League Playmaker award, which goes to the individual with the most assists over the term. With the best wishes for your future here at LFC, from your manager.

He was an unused substitute as City thrashed Swansea 5-0 at home in their first outing since being confirmed as champions.
