Salah, 25, returned to England this season after a spell in the Serie A, and has continued to earn awards for a stellar season in which he scored a record-tying 31 league goals so far, reports Efe.
"It was always in my mind to come back to the Premier League, to show the people that say I didn't succeed here the first time," Salah said after receiving the award, according to Liverpool's website.
He then went to Roma, first on loan and then on a long-term basis for one season, before heading to Liverpool for 34 million pounds ($46 million), where he has helped lead his club to the Champions League final against Real Madrid, set for May 26.
During his first season with Liverpool, Salah has scored a total of 43 goals in 50 matches in all competitions.
Salah has already been voted player of the year by the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) for the 2017-18 season, as well as winning footballer of the year by the Football Writers' Association.
