Egypt’s Salah retains African Footballer of the Year Award

English Premier League Top Scorers

After being crowned 2018 African Player of the Year, Mohamed Salah has set his sights on lifting the 2019 African Cup of Nations which is set to be hosted in his country.

The ceremony was held in Dakar, Senegal, the homeland of Salah's teammate and fellow nominee, Sadio Mane.

"I thank my family, my colleagues and everyone who has played a role in my life".

Mohamed Salah was impressive last season for Liverpool scoring 32 Premier League goals and also helped his team to reach the final of the 2017/18 Champions League.

Mane scored in every round of Europe's top-tier tournament, netting 10 in 11 games, in a season that saw him score 20 and assist nine in 44 games in all competitions, while so far this season he has nine goals and three assists in 26.

Ironically, Aubameyang has scored one league goal more than Salah, topping the charts with Tottenham Hotspur and England star Harry Kane on 14.

That injury raised doubts about his World Cup participation but he regained fitness to represent Egypt in the finals in Russian Federation, scoring twice as they exited in the first round.

Spotted by scouts from Swiss club Basel, he moved there in 2012 before joining Premier League giants Chelsea two years later.

In the Women category, Thembi Kgatlana was voted as African Women's Player of the Year 2018 ahead of the Nigerian duo of Oshoala and Francisca Ordega.

The Youth Player of the Year award went to Achraf Hakimi of Morocco, who plays for Borussia Dortmund of Germany.Morocco's Coach, Herve Renard beat Gernot Rohr to the Men's Coach of the Year crown, while surprise national team of the past year, Mauritania, won the Men's National Team of the Year.
