Elsewhere, Chelsea striker Sam Kerr also won the women’s Footballer of the Year award after another stellar campaign. The 28-year-old claimed the prize with 40% of the vote, beating Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema and Manchester City’s Lauren Hemp.
FWA chair Carrie Brown said: “Both Mo and Sam have been outstanding this season, breaking records for both club and country. As well as their performances on the pitch, they are leaders and standard bearers of excellence at their clubs and respective leagues.
“The fact they have won by such convincing margins underlines just how impressive they have been this season which has been recognised by our members.”
Both players are on course to win the Golden Boot in their respective leagues with Salah on 22 goals and Kerr scoring 18.
Salah made Liverpool history this season by becoming the club’s first player to score 20 Premier League goals in the three different campaigns.
He has been a key figure in Liverpool’s bid to claim an unprecedented Quadruple. Liverpool have already won the Carabao Cup and will face Chelsea in the FA Cup final while still being in the race for the Premier League title and Champions League.
Both Salah and Kerr will receive their awards on May 5, the FWA said.
