Mohamed Salah once again named African Footballer of the Year | Football

Mohamed Salah has been named African Footballer of the Year for a second successive year.

Salah beat fellow nominees, his Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mané and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, at the Confederation of African Football’s awards ceremony in Dakar on Tuesday. The Egypt forward 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. “I’m proud to win it twice, I must thank my family and my teammates, and I dedicate this award to my country, Egypt.”
