Mo Salah is truly the player of this season. The Egyptian has been in fiery form all campaign, guiding Liverpool to a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League as well as a strongly-found place in the finals of the UEFA Champions League, where they have booked a game against Real Madrid.
The Spanish club have been strong suitors for the 25-year-old, who has scored 32 Premier League goals.
The record he broke was the highest goal-scoring tally in a Premier League season, also grabbing the Golden Boot while he was at it.
WATCH: Players Reaction To Salah Winning Premier League Golden Boot
Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Luis Suarez have all reached the 31-goal mark in prior 38-game seasons, but it took a special effort from the Egyptian to outdo all three legendary players.
As expected, Twitter went berserk at the accomplishment and expressed their joy quite well.
Salah is a great player and completely deserves whether he won this season/year
But it's hypocrisy to compare his Season with Ronaldo's 2008. pic.twitter.com/4FKjiAILwQ

To put @MoSalah goalscoring into perspective, he's broken the record previously held by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez. Also scored more in season than Thierry Henry, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba. Some company that #LFC

Thierry Henry: 37 games
Luis Suárez: 33 games
Mohamed Salah: 36 games
None of them won the Premier League title. 😱 https://t.co/2LUBAVLj3D

Salah has truly achieved remarkable things this campaign, and many already expect him to be the talisman in Kiev, where Real Madrid may indeed have a tough time containing him from rounding up the season with the UEFA glory to his name.
Harry Kane’s 30-goal tally was just shy of Salah’s mark, and the Egyptian remarked jubilantly when accepting the award: “It is very special to be honest. It is always in my mind to help the team, and it was always in my mind to come back to England (after a disappointing spell at Chelsea).”
Will Ronaldo’s other feats be surpassed by Salah as well?
