  • Mohamed Salah to kids in Africa: Never stop dreaming

He is the second Egyptian to win the coveted award after Mahmoud al Khatib, who was crowned the African king of football in 1983. He was also instrumental to Egypt's qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. I had a fantastic time, especially with the national team where we qualified to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

The talented fast winger helped the Egyptian national team qualify for the World Cup finals to be held next summer in Russian Federation.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has won African Player of the Year for 2017 after he inspired his country Egypt to a long-awaited World Cup place and made a phenomenal start to his spell at Liverpool.

"This is a dream come true for me".

Salah's Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane, of Senegal, was runner-up and 2015 victor, Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang third after a 30-player list had been trimmed to three. "I had wonderful moments at Roma and Liverpool", Salah remarked after receiving the award.

In a 2016 interview with the BBC, Timberlake declined to describe it as a country album but acknowledged the influence. The singer said this album is inspired by his son, his wife and his family.


Salah has assisted Mané four times in the Premier League this season, with only Alvaro Morata and Cesar Azpilicueta providing more goals as a combination in the top flight. This is the first year CAF allowed captains of those teams to also vote for the continent's best player, it said. I want to dedicate this award to the kids in Egypt and Africa.

Under coach Jurgen Klopp, the "Fab 4" that consists of Brazil duo Roberto Firminho, Philippe Coutinho, Mane and Salah have been a challenge to the club's defence this season but their own defence needs a bit of a tuning as the Merseyside reds have paid a world record fee for a defender as they bring in Dutchman Virgil van Dijk from Southampton. He has been impressive, scoring 23 goals in 29 matches across all competitions.

The mercurial forward is expected to return in time for Liverpool's league clash against runaway leaders Manchester City at home on Jan 14.

Zambian youth player Parson Dhaka was named the youth player of the year, whilst Moroccan team Wydad Athletic Club was the 2017 club of the year.
