Jurgen Klopp: 'Salah would deserve to win the Premier League Player of the Year award'
However, the German conceded his star faces a strong competition from Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne.
“Look, I think Mo would deserve it 100%. As his manager, I’d say ‘come on, prove it by playing at this level for the rest of the season’,” he said.
“But both players have played an outstanding season with obvious highlights. Scoring goals, creating chances, which is what everyone wants to see.
“Yes, Mo would deserve it. But if I said now that Kevin De Bruyne should have no chance I’d be lying. He’s a fantastic player and City will be champions so he already has a trophy. Maybe we can at least win the other one!”
Is Salah better than De Bruyne?
