Mo Salah Wins BBC African Player Of The Year Award For The Second Year Running
Mohammed Salah has been named the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2018.
The Liverpool forward beat club teammate Sadio Mane, Senegal’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Ghana’s Thomas Partey, and Morocco’s Medhi Benatia.
Salah, 26, told BBC: “It’s a great feeling to win again. I’m happy and I would like to win it also next year!”
The Egyptian is the current PFA player of the year after scoring 44 goals in 52 games in his first season with Liverpool. He also helped his country qualify for the World Cup in Russia.
He is also the first player since Nigeria’s Jay-Jay Okocha to win the award in consecutive years and has said that the next step will be to help Liverpool win a trophy.
“I try to push myself every day to help the team win something,” he stated.
