After scoring six scintillating goals during the month of March, Mohamed Salah was named the Standard Chartered Liverpool Player of the Month yet again; making it the sixth time this season that he was won the award.
Salah comfortably beat Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andrew Robertson in the online poll, earning the majority of the fans’ votes. Andy came in at second and Ox placed third. After he received the trophy at Melwood on Thursday, Salah told LiverpoolFC.com;
Thank you. I’m very happy to win it again, but as I said many times the most important thing is to win the games and to get the points. I always try to score to help the team to get the points.
Salah’s goal tally for the season to date is now on 39 and having scored six of those during last month, when asked which of those were his favourites, he found it hard to only choose one! Instead he opted to go with two, saying:
I don’t know, all of them are very important for me but if I [had to] choose one, it would probably be Crystal Palace because [it was] after 85 or 86 minutes, and also the hat-trick, the third one against Watford. That was a good feeling.

The original King, Kenny Dalglish, was asked about his thoughts on Mo Salah and was clearly delighted (as we all are) with our Egyptian King. He told LFCTV’s LFC Later;
He has been fantastic. He must have outlived his own expectations I would have thought, and certainly you would have thought Jürgen could not have anticipated 39 goals so far. He’s still really humble and despite the fact he’s scored that many goals, he’s still going out and trying to do his bit – and he does his bit on the other side of it when he doesn’t have the ball. It’s fantastic. It’s been a brilliant bit of business and it’s great to see him saying how happy he is to be here.
And we are beyond happy to have him.
Long live our Egyptian King!
