Mohamed Salah, winner of the Player of the Year award

It’s been an eventful weekend in European football, one that has seen Mohamed Salah win the Player of the year award in the Premier League, Barcelona embarrass themselves  against lowly Levante and Juventus win their seventh consecutive Scudetto. 

  • Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian’s brilliant season was capped off yesterday with the Player of the year award. It comes following a campaign that has seen Salah score 32 times and guide Liverpool to the Champions League final.

Salah’s appetite for success was obvious in his demeanor when replaced seven minutes before the final whistle. The forward seemed to want to continue the game in a bid to improve his already impressive goalscoring record.

  • Juventus

Massimiliano Allegri’s team has officially clinched the Serie A trophy ahead of Napoli, a team they battled against for the entire campaign. Juventus drew 0-0 away to Roma. It proved enough to put the contest beyond contention.Massimiliano Allegri

Juve has been dominant in the Italian championship, now adding their seventh Scudetto in a row, an absolute record. Further adding to the good news, the team’s manager, has confirmed he is likely to remain at the club for next season, ending months of speculation.

  • Manchester City

City may have won the Premier league trophy with plenty of time left in the season, but they used their last game  as an opportunity to reach the milestone of 100 points, a Premier League record. It took a late goal from Gabriel Jesus to give the Manchester side victory over Southampton.Pep Guardiola

Even manager Pep Guardiola marveled at the impressive feat. “One hundred points is a lot – 50 points at home, 50 points away. It shows how stable and how good we were all the season.”

But the manager says he is most pleased by the way the team has consistently performed throughout the season. “My favourite is the way we played. You cannot achieve 100 points if you drop games and think it doesn’t matter. Once again our consistency showed up today. Wins at home, wins away – everything was perfect this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish,” the manager says.

  • Levante

It’s not often that we get to speak of Levante as one of Spain’s big winners, but last night’s performance against Barcelona is set to linger for some time. With Lionel Messi rested ahead of a friendly game that will contractually obligate the Argentine to play, Barcelona lost 5-4 to Levante.Sergio Busquets (Barcelona)

The La Liga champions visibly struggled, trailing 5-1 after one hour of play. This was the highest number of goals against Barcelona in Spain since Messi joined the senior squad.

It’s a heavy loss that should not affect the image of Barca’s wonderful season in Spain. It does, however, speak of the team’s dependency on Lionel Messi, a player that has proven vital for both club and country throughout the season.
