Mohamed Salah Wins 2017 African Footballer Of The Year 


Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named the 2017 Confederation of African Football Player of the Year.

The 25-year-old, who has scored 17 Premier League goals this season, helped Egypt reach the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations final in 2017. He finished ahead of Liverpool team-mate and Senegal winger Sadio Mane.

Salah, who was voted the BBC African Footballer of the Year in December, has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country. In early 2017, the forward was the central figure for Egypt as they finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations.

He also had a hand in all seven of the goals that took the Pharaohs to their first World Cup since 1990 – assisting two and scoring five, including the stoppage-time penalty against Congo that saw them qualify them for Russia. Salah’s form at club level has been every bit as impressive as it has in internationals.
