Salah - footballer of the year in Africa

08 January 2018

He was the joint-top scorer in the 2018 African World Cup Qualifiers netting five goals and guiding Egypt to their first FIFA World Cup since 1990. "Qualifying for the World Cup after 28 years, and to have a great season with the clubs Rome and Liverpool".

Salah's National team coach Hector Cuper also annexed the African Coach of the year whiles the Egyptian Pharaoh's won the African National team of the Year.

Egyptian football star and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has been awarded the African Player of the Year price after achieving success after success during 2017 with Egypt's national team and the Reds.

After 26 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions, Salah has scored 23 goals and registered eight assists.

And after winning the award yesterday, the Egyptian reflected on his impressive year. This is the first year the organisers have also allowed captains to vote for the continent's best player.

"This award is a big award for me ... it's a special moment for me in my career". "I want to dedicate this award to all the kids in Africa and Egypt and tell them never stop dreaming and never stop believing", he went on.

Salah has been a monster infront of goals as his run down the right flank is every defence's worst nightmare. Take a look at some of the action from the 25-year old this season.

The mercurial forward is expected to return in time for Liverpool's league clash against runaway leaders Manchester City at home on Jan 14.
