Mohamed Salah sends proud message to Liverpool fans ahead of Everton clash

Champions League- Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow

The pair attended the African Footballer of the Year ceremony in Accra on Thursday, with Salah winning the award ahead of Mané and Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, their fellow nominee.

He starred for a resurgent Egypt in the World Cup qualifiers where his brace helped the African nation reach qualify and also was infront of goal in the Africa cup of nations a year ago where Egypt were runners-up to Cameroon.

He also made an African record move to Liverpool and scored 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League club in 2017 so far. Egypt had been absent from the World Cup for 28 years.

He was then joint top-scorer in the World Cup qualification, inspiring the Pharaohs to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1990. I want to dedicate this award to the kids in Egypt and Africa.

The Egyptian succeeds Algerian Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City as holder of the most prized CAF individual award.

"If I can win this award twice, three, four times and even 20 times, I want to win it", the former Basel winger said.




It is the first time since 1986 that stars from the north of the continent, which along with the west is the strongest football region, have won successive titles.

Mane has failed to match the performances he showed last season.

Salah was the central figure for Egypt as they finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations.

He is now the Premier League's second top scorer with 17 goals, and has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country. The award is also aimed at improving the development of soccer in Africa.

"We are happy to play together".
