The Amount Of Money In Kenyan Shillings Awarded To Mo-Salah And Son After Winning EPL Golden Boot

Tottenham Hotspur winger Son Heung-Min and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah have shared the Premier League's golden boot award on a dramatic final day of the season.

Son started the final game of the season a goal behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the race to win the golden boot award, but netted twice in the space of five minutes to reach 23 Premier League goals to become the first Asian player to win the golden boot award.

Salah who was introduced as a substitute in their 3-1 win against Wolverhampton ensured he did not lose the golden boot by netting one goal to level with Son.

They were therefore awarded a golden boot each for scoring 23 goals. The Golden Boot Award in England is an annual association football award presented to the leading goal scorer in the Premier League. It is one of the most prestigious individual award given to a player.

The winners of the Golden Boot are given £1000 for each goal they scored throughout the season to donate to any charity of their choice. This is equivalent to ksh 145,712 according to the current currency exchange rates which is ksh 145 per sterling pound.

With 23 goals each, Mohammed Salah and Son Ming Hueng were therefore awarded £23,000 to donate to a charity of choice. This is equivalent to ksh 3,351,385 millions.

Apart from the golden boot, Mohammed Salah has also been awarded the play making award after offering 13 assists throughout the season.

Congratulations Mo-Salah and Son Ming Hueng for a successful season.
