On a night all about his achievements, Mohamed Salah remained admirably keen to make it a team effort.
Sunday’s PFA Awards ceremony saw the Egyptian propelled into the spotlight as he was named Players’ Player of the Year.
It marked deserved recognition for the wingers astonishing 41-goal haul in his first season back in England and testament to the extent of the feat given his ability to fend off competition from Manchester City’s consistently majestic Kevin De Bruyne.
Salah was accompanied by club captain Jordan Henderson, for what many believed was standard procedure for the occasion.
As it happens, the skipper’s attendance was on the request of Salah as a means of sharing the honour with the entire club, as explained by official club journalists James Carroll.

Salah proceeded to prioritise success for the entire club over any individual accolades to reaffirm his notoriously humble nature.
The 25-year-old also praised his teammates for helping him achieve such prolific scoring figures and his manager for implementing a style of football perfectly-suited to his traits.
Two more wins in the Premier League will cement a top four finish, whilst the Reds also have the chance to book a place in the Champions League final over two semi-final legs against Roma.
In what has already been an unimaginable season for Salah, few would put the unthinkable of a European final past him or Liverpool.
