Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has been named 2017 CAF African Player of the Year.

The 25-year-old has scored 23 goals in 29 fixtures for the English football giants since joining the club from A.S. Roma. He also helped his national team finish second at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations — scoring goals against Ghana and Burkina Faso.

The Egyptian, who won the award for the first time ever on Thursday, defeated his Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane, who finished second. Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished third.
