Mohamed Salah has received the Confederation of African Football (CAF) African Player of 2017. He accumulated a total of 625 points from a voting panel which consists of a group of highly influential and credible team coaches, captains, officials, and journalists.
Senegal’s Sadio Mane placed second and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerich Aubameyang at third place was present at the awards gala last Thursday night. Since signing for the Reds, Egypt’s forward scored the game-winning goal which launched his chance to place in 2017’s World Cup. With 23 goals made this season, Salah has been dubbed the second highest scorer in the Premier League next to Harry Kane.
Since 1983, the only Egyptian to win the gong is Mahmoud Al-Khatib. This 2017 has given way to Mohamed Salah to be the second Egyptian to win the gong since Al-Khatib. Aside from that, Hector Cooper also won the Best Coach of the Year Gong for qualifying the team for the World Cup in Russia.
