Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah has once again ruled the football world, as he was just named the Premier League's Player of the Year. 

Liverpool F.C.'s 25-year-old forward was awarded the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Player of the Year title for the 2017-2018 season on Sunday.

He has thus made history as the first Egyptian and the second player from Africa to ever win the award.

Beating out big names in the league, Salah was voted as PFA Player of the Year by his fellow Premier League players.

"It's an honor to win this award especially because it was voted for by the other players," said Salah, according to The Guardian

"I would like to thank my team-mates and everyone at the club for helping me to make this happen."

As for his thoughts on being the first Egyptian to take home the title, he said, "Hopefully I'm not the last one. I'm very proud to win and I've worked very hard."

Salah has been winning big the past year

In June 2017, Salah became the most expensive player in the history of Liverpool F.C. when he transferred from A.S. Roma. Since then, his performances have been making headlines time and time again.

Earlier this month, Salah won the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for the sixth time. The trophy is awarded by the football club based on monthly performance and fans' votes.

According to BBC Sport, Salah is currently tied with three other players for the record of the highest number of goals scored in one Premier League season, having scored 31 goals in 34 matches so far. The Egyptian star has the chance to break the record in the three upcoming games.

Salah is also set to represent Egypt at the 2018 World Cup in Russia as part of the national team, with Egyptian nationals pinning their hopes on him to lead the team to victory.
