Video: Kevin De Bruyne Reveals He Voted Mohamed Salah as POTY

Kevin de Bruyne has revealed he voted Mohamed Salah as his PFA Player of the Year.

The Manchester City midfielder will go up against the Liverpool attacker when the two English Premier League sides meet in the Champions League quarter-finals tonight.

It’s the first leg of their all-English showdown, with tonight’s game at Anfield before next week’s return leg takes place at the Etihad.

De Bruyne and Salah are the two main players in focus among a raft of quality on both teams – and attention is also on who will emerge as the Player of the Year.

It’s safe to say both have a very good chance of scooping the gong, but the Belgian midfield man believes Salah is deserving if no player from City wins it.

Speaking to BT Sport ahead of tonight’s game, de Bruyne revealed his choice – and even gave interviewer Des Kelly the proof:

That’s a classy explanation from de Bruyne as to why he’s voted for Salah. And it gives an insight into what other players may be thinking when it comes to the 36-goal attacker.

Hopefully both players can continue showing everyone why they are among the best players in Europe when the teams face off tonight.
