Update: Egypt's Salah nominated for Best FIFA Men's Player prize
Published in The Egyptian Gazette on 24 - 07 - 2018

GENEVA, July 24, 2018 (News Wires) - Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the Best FIFA Men's Player award for 2018. The Egyptian was Tuesday named on the 10-man shortlist for the prestigious accolade, which recognises the best male player over the last 12 months.
Salah's nomination comes in recognition of a remarkable debut season at Anfield following his move from AS Roma.
The 26-year-old scored 44 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions as Jürgen Klopp's team reached the Champions League final and secured qualification for this season's tournament.
His 32-goal haul in the Premier League broke the record previously jointly held by Luis Suarez, Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo for strikes in a 38-game season. Salah then scored twice in two appearances for his country at the World Cup in Russia.
Votes from the media, national team coaches, national team captains and fans will decide whether Salah's achievements are enough to see him take the gong at an award ceremony in London in September.
Full list of nominees:
Men's coach of the year: Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Stanislav Cherchesov (Russia), Zlatko Dalic (Croatia), Didier Deschamps (France), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Juergen Klopp (Liverpool), Roberto Martinez (Belgium), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid), Gareth Southgate (England), Ernesto Valverde (Barcelona), Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid)
Women's coach of the year: Emma Hayes (Chelsea), Stephan Lerch (VfL Wolfsburg), Mark Parsons (Portland Thorns), Reynald Pedros (Lyon), Alen Stajcic (Australia), Asako Takakura (Japan), Vadao (Brazil), Jorge Vilda (Spain), Martina Voss-Tecklenburg (Switzerland), Sarina Wiegman (The Netherlands)
Men's player of the year: Mohamed Salah of Liverpool, Tottenham's Harry Kane, Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, new Juventus signing Cristiano Ronaldo, PSG's Kylian Mbappe, Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Real Madrid's duo Luka Modric and Raphael Varane are also included.
Women's player of the year: Lucy Bronze, Pernille Harder, Ada Hegerberg, Amandine Henry, Sam Kerr, Saki Kumagai, Dzsenifer Marozsan, Marta, Megan Rapinoe, Wendie Renard.
