Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Wins FWA Player of the Year Award

  • Egyptian soccer star Mohamed Salah to be rewarded with land in Mecca

Salah is the English Premier League's leading goal-scorer, and a key player in Egypt's national squad heading to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Salah escaping disciplinary action from the FA means he is now able to have two more attempts at breaking the goalscoring record for a 38 game Premier League season, with the likes of Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo the holders with 31 goals.

The former Chelsea and Basel winger netted twice in the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final win against his former club at Anfield last week.

The dispute erupted six weeks before Salah leads Egypt at the World Cup, the country's first appearance at the tournament since 1990.

He said they have been waiting on the Egyptian officials to contact them or give a soothing response as to why they did what they did and how they intend going about a resolution but have heard nothing from them until then.




Salah addressed the issue himself with a Tweet in Arabic on Sunday, writing: "Sorry but this is a major insult ..." Ramy Abbas, Salah's agent, claimed separately that the federation had ignored his requests for clarifications over the issue.

Obviously this is a huge conflict of interest and Salah is furious that his image was used without his consent.

No sportsman in Egypt has ever commanded the adulation and respect Salah has enjoyed since joining Liverpool a year ago from Italian club Roma. "I was hoping the handling (of the dispute) would be classier than this", Salah tweeted Sunday.

Salah's tweet went viral on social media and Egyptian fans launched a twitter hashtag, (hash) Support-Mohamed-Salah to show solidarity with their beloved player. I was extremely happy with the reactions.

"What's the plan?! We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised!"
