Mo Salah Voted African Footballer of The Year
Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah has been voted the African footballer of the year. He takes the title for the second year in a row. Other nominees included Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
He edged the same two players last year in a vote decided by the technical directors and head coaches of 56 CAF member associations.
“This award is very big for me, I love it because I saw it when I was young and I always had a dream to win it one day,” Salah said when collecting his trophy for his 2018 exploits.
“I’m proud to win it twice, I must thank my family and my team mates, and I dedicate this award to my country, Egypt.”
