The 26-year-old, Mohamed Salah, wins the award after an excellent 2018 in which he helped guide the Reds to the Champions League final, and he is in good form this season again with nine goals in 20 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.

The Egyptian attacker finished first in a poll of 366,000 fan votes, beating fellow candidates Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard, Harry Maguire and Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk.

“Thank you for this award, it means so much to me because it was voted for by supporters,” Salah said as he accepted his FSF award.

“Usually I share any awards with my teammates and all the staff at Liverpool, but on this occasion I would like also to dedicate it to the Liverpool fans for their incredible support. Thank you.”

Salah is the third player to win the award since its inauguration in 2013. Luis Suarez was the first winner after a stunning campaign at Anfield, while Philippe Coutinho won it in 2016.
Mohamed Salah has been named the Football Supporters' Federation's ( FSF ) 2018 Player of the Year.
