Mo Salah picks up second Player of the Month of 2017/18

Egyptian superstar Mo Salah is continuing to receive deserved plaudits for his performances for Liverpool this season.

After scoring another four goals and two assists in just three games last month, the Pharaohs Winger has been crowned February’s Player of the Month.

He adds the personal award to a growing trophy cabinet, after picking up the same award for December.

The last month of 2017 was a successful one for the Reds attacker, as he was also awarded the BBC African Player of the Year, before winning CAF’s Player of the Year award the month after.

Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com, Salah commented:

“I’m enjoying the season, but the players make it easier and the boss also makes it easier for me,” Salah said.

“We had a good season so far because we’re still playing in the Champions League and in third position in the Premier League. We’re fighting to be in a better position.

“But as I said, results are the most important thing. I’m doing good and I feel good with the team and I’m trying to help the team always to get points.

“I try in every game to score, to do something different, but I’m happy about the results and about what we have right now.”

Peter Odemwingie is the African player with the most Player of the Month awards, sitting atop the charts with three.

However, with Salah in such scintillating form, it wouldn’t be that farfetched to see him pick up a third before the end of the season.

Up next for Liverpool and Salah is a tricky fixture against Arch-rivals Manchester United, with Salah stating that games against United are always special.

He told Premier League Productions that: “It’s a special game. Second and third play against each other so everyone plays for the three points.”

“We have confidence we can play like it’s a normal game. It’s important of course but in the end our target is just one target: we need to win the game and come back with the three points.”
