Arsenal legend Martin Keown aimed a sly dig at Liverpool star Mohamed Salah after his PFA Player of the Year win on Sunday night.

But there is some good news for Reds fans, as the paper says Salah may decide to stay at Anfield thanks to his close relationship with manager Jurgen Klopp and a desire to prove his worth in the Premier League.

Manchester City's Sane won the young player prize, while Chelsea's Fran Kirby won the Women's Player of the Year award.

Fresh from his success however he must now focus on helping Liverpool overcome his former club Roma in the Champions League semi final - a great opportunity for him to go on to make this a truly sensational season. We both have the chance to go to the final - and that's all I need.

Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush says that Mo Salah's Player of the Year award is well deserved and that he would be happy to see the Egyptian striker better his record of 47 goals in a season for the Merseyside club by scoring the victor in the Champions League final.

While not unexpected given his stunning debut season at Anfield, Salah faced strong competition from the Belgium global De Bruyne, who has been the standout player for the champions.

Widespread fog expected Friday morning; no snow in extended forecast
Another storm system will likely approach Central Florida late next week, bringing scattered showers back into the forecast. Expect gradual clearing throughout the day Sunday , with breezy north-northeast winds and highs in the low to mid-70s.

"Players change clubs, managers change clubs - I had it with Dortmund two years ago already", Klopp said.

Asked what it meant to become the first Egyptian to win the award, he said: "Hopefully I'm not the last one".

"The Premier League has fantastic players and I'm really honoured to receive the award", said Sane.

"To some extent, it surprises me that [Salah] has been doing so well in his first season at Liverpool", Totti told Liverpool's official website.

He has been out of this world this season, and he is a deserved victor of the PFA Player of the Year award. In short, and with due respect to David Silva, that ageless genius, De Bruyne is the best player on the best team in the country.

"He obviously doesn't score as many goals as Mo Salah, but he's very important for Manchester City, for the way they play, and he creates a lot of goals from the midfield". "It's very special to play for a club like Liverpool in the semi-final and the atmosphere at Anfield is great", he further added.
