Kristian Walsh is joined by Paul Gorst and Matt Addison to announce the winner of the inaugural Fans’ Footballer of the Year... Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah. Football journalists from across Reach PLC – the company behind Blood Red and the Liverpool ECHO – recently picked their top Premier League players of 2020. And after counting the votes, the shortlist was whittled down to seven players – four of which play for the champions, Liverpool. Salah was joined on the shortlist by team-mates Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk, plus Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford. Supporters have then spent the past 10 days voting for the winner, which today can be revealed as Salah. And which, in this special Blood Red podcast, gives Kristian, Gorsty and Matt the chance to look back on a quite incredible year for Anfield’s Egyptian King. Enjoy.
