Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane

Mohamed Salah's incredible first season at Liverpool has been recognised by the Football Writers' Association, who have voted him as their Footballer of the Year ahead of Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

With Mohamed Salah just one goal from making history and becoming the highest scorer of all time in a 38-game Premier League season, a suspension at this point would be devastating.

The news will come as a relief to Jurgen Klopp and co, and it means the goal-hungry attacker can focus purely on Wednesday's evening Champions League semi-final second leg against Roma.

Salah moved to Anfield from Roma last summer, having previously played in the Premier League with Chelsea.

Alfie's Army rallies behind his family and releases balloons in
It is nothing short of tragic for the life of a human being to be in the hands of someone other than oneself or one's own family. For all the talk of a "right" to healthcare in this country, it is surprising that there is not more concern over this issue.

However he has proved his doubters wrong and looks set to beat off a late surge by Kane to finish the campaign as the Premier League's top goalscorer.
