Liverpool’s Salah Named FWA Men’s Footballer of the Year

In the Football Writers’ Association’s (FWA) annual poll on Friday, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was named England’s Men’s Footballer of the Year for the second time, with the Egypt international winning the accolade for the second time.

Salah, who also won in 2018, received 48 percent of the vote, ahead of Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City and Declan Rice of West Ham United, who finished in second and third, respectively.

The 29-year-old has 30 goals and 14 assists in 44 games for Liverpool this season and remains a key part of Juergen Klopp’s team, who are one point behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League with five matches left.

Chelsea forward Sam Kerr took home the Women’s Footballer of the Year award with 40% of the vote, beating Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema and City’s Lauren Hemp.

Australia international Kerr is the top scorer in the Women’s Super League this season with 18 goals.

Both Salah and Kerr will receive their awards on May 5, the FWA said.
