Did You See How Salah Danced At The 2018 CAF Awards?

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah Mohamed Salah beat Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane to the award
Noah Ferguson | 10 January, 2019, 01:53

Though Mane was beaten to the titular award, he was given a place in Africa's Best XI, alongside fellow Red Naby Keita, as well as Premier League representatives Riyad Mahraz, Aubameyang, Eric Bailly and Serge Aurier.

The 26-year-old's performances throughout the year also saw him retain the BBC African Footballer of the Year prize and finish sixth in the Ballon d'Or standings.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is the 2018 Confederation of African Football Player of the Year - the second consecutive year he has won the award.

Just as he did 12 months ago, the Liverpool forward held off competition from teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to land the award.

"I'm truly honoured and privileged to receive this award in this hall full of prestigious people". Ahead of the event, CAF Executive Committee has awarded the hosting rights for 2019 AFCON to Egypt.

Cameroon was scheduled to host this summer's tournament but it was stripped of the honour in November due to slow preparations.

Salah blossomed in Rome, averaging close to a goal every two matches, and Liverpool paid nearly €41 millionn (£37 million) to sign him two years ago.

He also scored twice at the World Cup in Egypt's first appearance at the competition in 28 years.

South Africa's Chrestinah Thembi Kgatlana was crowned the best in the women's category.

For the Men's Coach of the Year 2018, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr was not in the final shortlist and it was Morocco coach Herve Renard that was voted as the continent's best gaffer.
