Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is on the three-man shortlist for UEFA’s 2017-18 Men’s Player of the Year award.
The Egyptian scored 10 goals in the UEFA Champions League proper last season to help the Reds reach the final in his debut season with the club.
Salah is up against Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo, who were part of the Real Madrid team that beat Liverpool in Kiev, for the prize.
The winner will be announced August 30 at the 2018-19 Champions League group stage draw. Salah also is in contention for Champions League Forward of the Season award.
Salah won last season’s England’s Players’ Player of the Year Award and the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year Award.
