Fans’ hearts were focused on Mohamed Salah, not Son Heung-min. Salah won the Fans’ Player of the Month award for September.
Liverpool officially announced on the club’s official website on the 23rd (Korean time)
Salah has been selected as the September Player of the Month by PFA Premier League fans.”
Salah, who scored 2 goals and 2 assists in the month of September, helped Liverpool achieve 3 wins in 4 games.
As a result, he was honored with the award, beating Erling Holland (Manchester City)
Son Heung-min, James Maddison (Tottenham Hotspur), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), and Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United).
Salah from Egypt is a striker representing the Premier League. He played in Basel, Switzerland, but did not leave a clear mark when he moved to Chelsea 안전놀이터
but by the time he moved to Liverpool via AS Roma, he had grown into a world-class winger.
Salah, who became an ace immediately after joining Liverpool in the 2017/18 season, led Liverpool to second place in the UEFA Champions League that season.
Although he was replaced early in the final due to injury and lost to Real Madrid due to a fellow goalkeeper’s mistake
Salah’s performance throughout the season announced the birth of a new star.
Salah, who became the league’s top scorer with a whopping 32 goals in 36 games
had his best season by winning the Premier League Player of the Year award.
In the 2018/19 season, Liverpool won the Champions League trophy.
Liverpool, which had not played in the Champions League since the 2004/05 season, rose to the top of Europe for the first time in 14 years thanks to Salah’s performance.
He also finished as the top scorer in the league for the second consecutive season, scoring 22 goals.
History was made in the 2019/20 season as well.
Together with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, he formed the best trio in the Premier League and won the league title with 99 points, beating rival Manchester City.
He played a key role in leading the club to its first Premier League title in history.
Salah has maintained his form consistently. He continued to be a key striker the following season
scoring 22 goals in the league alone.
In the 2021/22 season, he scored 23 goals, making him joint top scorer with Son Heung-min. Last season
he overcame an early slump and succeeded in making a comeback by scoring 19 goals and 12 assists.
The performance continues this season as well.
Salah scored 8 goals and 4 assists in 11 games.
He is the second highest scorer in the league alone, with 7 goals and 4 assists, behind Erling Haaland.
Of those, 2 goals and 2 assists came during the month of September.
Led by Salah’s performance, Liverpool defeated Aston Villa, Wolverhampton, and West Ham United in succession.
Although they lost 1-2 to Tottenham, the result could have been different as there were two red cards and a dispute over the decision.
This is the ninth time Salah has won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award.
Salah won the award consecutively in November and December 2017.
He was named the best player in February, March and December of 2018.
Salah, who won the award in January 2019 and April 2019 and was unable to reach it until October 2021
won the hearts of fans again after about two years and succeeded in winning his ninth award.
With Salah’s award, Son Heung-min, who scored 6 goals in September alone
unfortunately missed out on this award.
Son Heung-min won the Premier League’s September EA Sports Player of the Month award on the 13th
but fans’ hearts were more inclined towards Salah rather than Son Heung-min.
At the time, the Premier League officially announced on its official website
Son Heung-min was on par with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry when he won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award.”
Julian Alvarez (2 goals, 2 assists in 4 games, Man City), Jared Bowen (3 goals in 4 games, West Ham)
Pedro Neto (1 goal, 3 assists in 4 games, Wolverhampton), Salah (2 goals, 2 assists in 4 games, Liverpool)
Trippier (4 games, 4 assists, Newcastle) and Ollie Watkins (4 games, 4 goals and 1 assist, Aston Villa) won the honor of the award.
Son Heung-min, who succeeded in winning the Player of the Month award for the fourth time in his career in the Premier League
tied the number of awards with Premier League legends such as Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, and Frank Lampard.
Even if limited to his active career, he was tied for first place with the most awards with three others, including Salah, Bruno Fernandes, and Marcus Rashford (Manchester United).
Tottenham, which had a disappointing performance last season by finishing in 8th place, is showing good momentum in the early part of the season by going undefeated thanks to Son Heung-min’s performance.
However, fans gave Salah’s performance more points than Son Heung-min’s performance.
Fans evaluated Salah as a more impressive player than Son Heung-min.
