Mohamed Salah became the first Egyptian footballer to win the Premier League after the Reds were confirmed Champions On Thursday.

Salah was not granted a medal when his former club Chelsea won the title in 2015 because of the FA regulations that states the a minimum of five games is required to be eligible for a medal. That year Salah had only three appearances for the blues and spent the remaining appearances on loan at Fiorentina before sold to AS Roma.

Salah has reached a number of milestones during his time at Anfield – in 2018, he became the second fastest Liverpool player to reach 20 goals and also he’s one of the top 10 players who have reached 30 goals or more for the Reds in one season during the post-War years.
