The Egypt worldwide followed in the footsteps of Drogba by winning the African footballer of the year award earlier this week ahead of competition from Sadio Mane, Naby Keita, Victor Moses and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Merseyside club also set a record for goals scored by a Premier League club in the Champions League group stage after finding the back of the net 23 times in six games.
In paying homage to those triumphs, World Cup victor and all-time great Pele posted on Twitter: "Parabéns [Congratulations], @22MoSalah!"
Liverpool will pay Roma an extra £1.3m for forward Mohamed Salah once he reaches 20 goals for the campaign, according to a report.
His talismanic displays have not been restricted to domestic competition either, with a match-winning brace against Congo - including a last-gasp penalty - carrying Egypt to the 2018 World Cup and a first appearance on that global stage in 28 years.
"I am very happy to win this award", Salah told BBC Sport.
"I want to be the best Egyptian ever so I work hard".
