Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has won the PFA Player of the Year award, and is the deserved winner after an incredible season in the Premier League and Champions League for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The 25-year-old had previously endured a disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge, making just 13 league appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side before being loaned out to Fiorentina and subsequently Roma.
Salah, on winning the award, looked back at his short Chelsea career and insists he wasn’t given the chance to showcase his talent at the Bridge.
When asked if he knew he would do as well as he has done at Liverpool, he responded: “Yes, I think it from the first day I left the Premier League it was always in my mind that I would succeed here.
“I didn’t have my chance at Chelsea so it was very clear in my mind that I return back to the Premier League and I will show everyone my football.
“I’m very happy about my award, I’m very happy about my team-mates for what we are doing in the Premier League and the Champions League.”
When asked if he had a point to prove, he added: “I think I left, and then I came back as a different person, a different man, a different player.
“As I said before, I didn’t have my chance. I will talk about myself at the moment, I’m very happy and very proud about that.”
