For his outstanding performance during November, Egyptian football star and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been rewarded with the EA Sports Player of the Month Award, the Premier League announced on its website.

After scoring seven goals in just four matches, Salah becomes the first ever Egyptian to win the award in Premier League history.

“Thank you for voting me player of the month in November,” Salah said in response to the announcement.

“That month, I scored seven goals and it’s a good feeling, but for me the most important thing is the result and we had good results that month,” he added.

“Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games.”

Salah netted two goals in each of Liverpool’s victories against West Ham United, Southampton and Stoke City, and scored one goal in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Salah, the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goals this season, received the most combined votes from fans, Premier League captains and a panel of experts, beating six other contenders for the award.

The Egyptian joined the Liverpool team in June and has since made headlines in England and across the world after scoring 20 goals in 24 appearances with his new team.

Prior to joining Liverpool, Salah spent two seasons in Roma where he scored 29 goals in 65 Serie A appearances.

Last week, he won the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2017, beating his Senegalese Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Borussia Dortmund Gabonese forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang..

Burnley’s Robbie Brady, Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, Ashley Young of Manchester United, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi were also nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month Award.
