It has been a fantastic year for Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.
After tearing it up in Serie A with Roma, the Egyptian international earned a big money move to Anfield where he has continued his impressive form.
He has already found the back of the net nine times under Jurgen Klopp and has silenced all those that said he wasn't good enough for the Premier League after his failed stint with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.
In the last international break, Salah also wrote himself into Egyptian folklore as his two goals in a 2-1 victory over Congo guided his nation to their first World Cup since 1990.
His winner came courtesy of a 95th-minute penalty, drama.
AFRICAN PLAYER OF THE YEAR NOMINATION
Naturally, Salah was nominated for the prestigious award along with teammate Sadio Mane.
Due to his stunning form in 2017, the Egyptian star is one of the favourites, with Mane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Victor Moses, Eric Bailly and Keita Balde his closest competitors.
Now, his former club Roma are known fans of their ex-player and have in the past sent a few brilliant tweets in support of him.
And, their expertly run Twitter account has done it again with a perfectly timed post about his nomination.
To be fair, they may have a point if he keeps finding the back of the net with Liverpool.
THE REASON THEY'VE DONE IT
The likely reason for the tweet is because of the fact that Salah has been winning a number of personal awards recently due to votes from Egyptian fans.
He was voted the Champions League Player of the Week twice. Sadly, Roma aren't aware that the African POTY is not a fan vote.
Better luck next time with the tweet.
SALAH'S PENALTY WOES
The only issue with the Egyptian star has been his penalty taking in England, with Salah seeing one saved by Huddersfield's Jonas Lossl on the weekend.
Luckily, it didn't have an impact on the result as Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners.
"I thought it made sense after the Egypt penalty - obviously the pressure is bigger in Liverpool than in Egypt to qualify for the World Cup," said Klopp.
SALAH TO BE GIVEN A MUCH-NEEDED BREAK
Luckily for Klopp, Salah has been left out of Egypt's squad for the upcoming International break and will finally have a chance to refuel after a hectic few months.
Liverpool have a big game away at West Ham on Saturday evening before hosting Southampton after the break.
