"It seems incredible, in a year when Mo Salah has scored 36 club goals and Harry Kane has hit 35, that neither of them might win the PFA's coveted accolade for 2017-18".
That excitement to get out and play transcends onto the training ground, too, according to Rush, despite the obvious risk of picking up injuries that could ultimately have an impact on a player's momentum.
Salah is the type of signing which will excite fans but with Liverpool intent on challenging for next season's Premier League title, Real's chances of successfully luring him away from Anfield are remote at best.
"Well, I have heard so many rumours that it doesn't bother me anymore (.) They have treated me very well in Liverpool and at this moment, I belong to Liverpool and I am happy at Anfield", quoted by Spanish outlet Marca.
With Neymar heavily linked with a return to Spain after just one season in France, it is understood PSG may not be willing to let go of their golden boy just yet. "I think it's going to be tight between those two but, for me, Player of the Year is definitely Mo Salah".
That's typical Salah - so much quality regardless of where he is in front of goal. While Liverpool might not be able to provide him with regular first-team football, Sobhi will surely be a squad rotation option, considering the fact that Liverpool have been looking towards Thomas Lemar as a potential addition in the summer transfer window.
"When I scored 47 goals we won the European Cup so it does need that little bit longer". That's what we've got to start doing now.
"It's great having individual trophies, but in my [47-goal] season we won three trophies".
Rush's remarkable season was no outlier.
"But if you are not successful it's an excuse for a Salah, a Mane or a Firmino to say "actually, I want to win trophies". Every season he's breaking his own records.
"You're always looking to improve each season because the opposition will be doing exactly the same".
