Liverpool Star Mohamed Salah Wins African Player of the Year Award

Last year Leicester's Algerian ace Riyad Mahrez won the honor, and prior to that Manchester City's Ivorian Yaya Touré was named player of the year for four successive years, from 2011 to 2014.

The Liverpool attacker beat competitions from his teammate Saido Mane and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to claim the most coveted award.

On Thursday it was announced that his heroics on the pitch have earned him the 2017 African player of the year award.

Salah helped his national team reach finals of the African Cup of Nations in Gabon previous year where they lost to Cameroon.

Mane finished second on 507 with Aubameyang third on 311.

Salah has scored 23 goals for his club Liverpool in competitions in 2017.

In the 2016/2017 season, he was Roma's best player, scoring 15 league goals and leading them to an impressive second place with 87 points, their highest so far in history even more than 75 they got when they last won the Serie A title in 2001.

Egypt's Argentine manager Hector Cuper has been named Coach of the Year while other honours have gone to Egypt (national team), South Africa (women's national team) and Wydad Casablanca (club).

He also guided Egypt to book a place at this year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, scoring a 94th minute penalty against Congo to win the match and send the Pharaohs to Russian Federation. "To qualify to the World Cup after 28 years and to have a great season at Roma and Liverpool were special moments in my career", Salah said.
