Kevin De Bruyne Believes Mo Salah Will Win Player of the Year

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah heads the list of six finalists for the PFA Player of the Year Award, which was unveiled yesterday. Salah is considered the favorite, with Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne his main challenger. De Bruyne said yesterday that he doesn’t believe he’ll win the award, and that it will instead go to Salah.

De Bruyne was asked in an interview with NBC Sports if he believes Salah should claim the award.

“Yeah, I think if you can choose nobody from our team, I think he deserves it,” the Man City star said after his side beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1.

“Probably he’s going to win it anyway. He’s been remarkable and to compete with somebody that’s scored that many goals, you’re not going to win. I’m very satisfied with my performances this year, with the team.”

The rest of the short list is rounded out by Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Manchester United’s David de Gea and Manchester City duo Leroy Sane and David Silva. Players are not allowed to vote for themselves or their teammates, so De Bruyne could only pick from three footballers when casting his PFA Player of the Year award ballot.

In a show of tremendous class and elite sportsmanship a couple weeks ago, De Bruyne revealed his vote for Player of the Year, and it was in fact, Mo Salah.
