Confederation of African football's president Dr Ahmad Ahmad has insisted that Egyptian attacker Mohammed Salah is now a better player than Barcelona ace Lionel Messi.
Salah needs just one more goal to break the single season scoring record in a 38-game Premier League campaign. He was also the first to be named the Premier League's player of the month three times in one season.
The first-leg of the Champions League semifinal will be held at Anfield.
That may be splitting hairs, but Salah and De Bruyne have both been so outstanding this season that the final decision comes down to those tiny margins.
The awards were presented at the 45th PFA Awards Sunday at Grosvenor House in central London.
Liverpool moved onto 38 goals for this season's competition - 11 more than any other team - but can not begin preparing for the final in Kiev on May 26 quite yet.
"Obviously, if I think back to that European Cup final in 1984, it's a bad memory, so we would have probably have avoided such a draw".
The timing of the vote for both awards does not always help in terms of selecting the right victor, though.
"He's just showing what he can produce if you give him an opportunity to play".
"City would not be dominating in the Premier League without De Bruyne's vision and desire to take the game to the opposition".
