Liverpool Winger Mohamed Salah Leads PFA Team of the year


Liverpool Winger Mohamed Salah is the favorite to win the PFA Player of the Year award, and later this month the winner will be announced. The Egyptian magician on the pitch did win one honor today however, as he was named to the PFA Team of the Year.

Joining him on the team today are four of the other five players named to the PFA POY short list: Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, and Manchester City duo- Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva.

City’s Leroy Sane, named to the short list, was inexplicably left off the team. Here’s the full team listed out, in visual formation of how the all-star team would play on a pitch:

City had three more on the team in forward Sergio Aguero, right back Kyle Walker and center back Nicolas Otamendi. The Citizens comprise nearly half the team as they boast five of the eleven selected. Joining Kane on the team are a duo from Spurs- central defender Jan Vertonghen and midfielder Christian Eriksen. Chelsea wing back Marcos Alonso completes the team.

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