Egyptian sensation, Mohammed Salah has won the 2018 BBC African footballer of the year award. The Egyptian and Liverpool forward becomes the only player after Austin 'Jay Jay' Okocha to retain the coveted prize he won a year ago.
Mo Salah pipped his Reds teammate, Sadio Mane(Senegal), as well as, Mehdi Benatia(Morroco), Thomas Partey(Ghana), and Kalidou Koulibaly(Senegal) to clinch the award in an online poll.
Mo Salah, who had a splendid season with the Reds, notched 44 goals in all competitions, helping the Reds to reach a Champions League final, as well as representing his country at the World Cup in Russia.
MO Salah's blazing form has continued in the current campaign, his hattrick at the Vitality stadium increased his tally in the EPL to 10 strikes, as well as taking Liverpool to the knockouts of the Champions League with his lone goal against Napoli at Anfield.
MO Salah would be in action this weekeend, as the Reds welcome Mourinho's United, in what promises to be a cracker.
