​​Liverpool hero Thompson hails 'astonishing' Salah season

Phil Thompson has no doubt about who is Liverpool's Player of the Season.

The former Anfield hero is one of many football workers who have been impressed with Mohamed Salah's showing this season.

"Simply Mohamed Salah," Thompson told Sky Sports.

"I'm not even going to pretend it is close because to do what he's done in a first season, not being an out-and-out striker, it has just been an astonishing season.

"Never in his wildest dreams could he have thought he would score the volume of goals he has."
