The Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool winger, received a new shock Thursday, with the announcement of the Professional Players Association in England, of the candidates for the award for the best player in the English Premier League this year.
The League’s selections saw the presence of: Alexander Arnold, Sadio Mane, Virgil Van Dyck (Liverpool), Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Jimmy Vardy (Leicester City).
Salah, Liverpool’s top scorer this season, with 19 Premier League goals, was excluded from the list of nominations for the first time since he came to Anfield, 3 years ago.
Liverpool won, this season, the Premier League title for the first time in 30 years.
It is worth noting that Jordan Henderson, captain of Liverpool, won the Player of the Season award, presented by the Critics Association in England.
