  • Liverpool Star Mo Salah's Tweet Could Spell Disaster For World Cup Participation

Liverpool still have two Premier League games to play this season and Salah will most likely be wrapped up in cotton wool ahead of the showdown with Real Madrid on May 26.

Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, has been named the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.

Salah and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne had been frontrunners for the award but the Egyptian has pipped him by less than 20 votes.

Salah has also scored 11 times in 13 games in the Champions League and will hope to fire Liverpool to the final when he faces his old side Roma on Wednesday evening. Salah has helped Liverpool, who are third in the Premier League, into the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 10 years.

Salah, who plays for Egypt and is expected to sizzle for the African giants at the World Cup this summer, is furious that his image features prominently on the outside of the national team's plane, which was provided by official sponsor WE.

"Mo Salah came in nine months ago to make the next step in his career and he did it".

Trump 'very proud' of crew of troubled Southwest flight
At 30,000 feet, passengers heard a bang and felt a bump as a fan blade broke off in the engine, causing it to explode. Flight 1380 was headed from NY to Dallas last month when an engine on the Boeing 737 exploded at 30,000 feet.

"It has been the tightest call since 1968/69, when there was a dead heat between Tony Book of Manchester City and Derby´s Dave Mackay", said FWA chairman Patrick Barclay. He is also the first African to receive the award and we congratulate him on a magnificent season'.

Mohamed Salah has toned down his training efforts for fear of getting injured, Alberto Moreno has revealed.

"He is a great guy, very humble, very calm", Moreno said of Salah to Onda Cero radio.

But one journalist's question raised some eyebrows.

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.
