Mane finished second on 507 with Aubameyang third on 311.

He had something to prove back in the Premier League when he joined Liverpool last summer and he showed what Chelsea are missing by netting 23 goals before the turn of the year in all competitions. "I want to dedicate this award to all the kids in Africa and in Egypt, and to tell them to never stop dreaming and believing". His hard work is definitely paying off and he could become just the second Egyptian to win the coveted African player award after Mahmoud El Khatib, who won in 1983.

He also guided Egypt to book a place at this year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, scoring a 94th minute penalty against Congo to win the match and send the Pharaohs to Russian Federation. Egypt was named National Team of the Year, alongside its Argentinian manager, Hector Cuper, who was voted Coach of the Year. "To qualify to the World Cup after 28 years and to have a great season at Roma and Liverpool were special moments in my career", Salah said at the Confederation of African Football awards.
