Liverpool Star Mo Salah Shows Off Best Moves As He Picks Up African Award Again

Mo Salah celebrates being named the CAF African Player of the Year for a second successive year
Mo Salah celebrates being named the CAF African Player of the Year for a second successive year

Prolific Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has been announced as the CAF African Player of the Year for the second year running.

Salah beat off competition from his team-mate Sadio Mane as well as Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to claim the Confederation of African Football prize today.

The award is voted on by CAF's national team coaches and technical directors as well as members of the CAF technical and development committee and selected journalists from around the world.

The talented Egyptian scored 44 goals for Liverpool last term though the season ended in personal disappointment - injured in the Champions League Final which was eventually won by Real Madrid. The Reds finished fourth in the Premier League and are going even better this season under Jurgen Klopp, topping the table as well as being in the last 16 of the Champions League. Salah has already got 16 goals this season and will no doubt add plenty more as they look to edge out Manchester City in the race for the title.

On the international front, the 26-year-old has scored four times in three Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for Egypt.

Salah was also named in the Africa Best XI for 2018. Other Premier League stars to be included in the team were Liverpool's Mane, Naby Keita and Premier League rivals Serge Aurier, Eric Bailly, Riyad Mahrez and Aubameyang.

After receiving the award, Salah danced on stage proudly holding his award and enjoying the adulation of the crowd at the ceremony in Dakar, Senegal.
