Mohamed Salah Named African Footballer Of The Year By The BBC

Liverpool's Salah gets better and better: Key stats from the Premier League

Salah has 19 goals for Liverpool this season, equalling his total from last season in Italy.

Salah beat a star-studded cast of rivals to become the third Egyptian to win the award and first since Mohamed Aboutrika picked up the gong in 2008.

Salah also helped Egypt to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1990. A stunning strike in Sunday's Merseyside Derby brought the Egyptian's goal tally for the campaign to a staggering 19 with 13 of those coming in the Premier League.

"I would like to win this award also next year", Salah told BBC Sport.

The Egypt worldwide beat out the likes of Gabon's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Guinean Naby Keita, Sadio Mane of Senegal and Nigeria's Victor Moses.




"I am very happy here at the club". "I'd like to thank everybody; my teammates and the people I work with".

Salah, the current top goalscorer in the Premier League, was at the heart of an Egypt side which finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations back in February. Mohamed Salah is really good.

On Monday, Salah was announced as the victor of the 2017 BBC best African footballer award, taking over from Algeria and Leicester winger, Riyad Mahrez.

"I always follow my own way and I want everyone in Egypt to follow my way". "The good thing with him is he is still young, there is a lot of space for improvement and still a lot of potential for us to work on, but that's how it should be".
