Egypt and Liverpool striker, Mohamed Salah, on Tuesday night won the 2018 CAF Player of the Year for the second time in a row.

The Egyptian had a wonderful 2017/2018 season, leading the Reds to a second place finish in the UEFA Champions League and grabbing the golden boot in the Premier League.

He also orchestrated Egypt’s qualification to the 2018 FIFA World Cup held in Russia last June.

Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also made the three-man shortlist for the award.

The nominees for the main award made up the front three in CAF’s Africa Best XI of the year, with Guinea’s Naby Keita providing further Liverpool representation in a midfield completed by Atletico Madrid and Ghana’s Thomas Partey and Manchester City and Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez.
