Mohamed Salah is the 2018 CAF African Player of the Year for the second successive time. 

Sadio Mane who is Salah's team mate at Liverpool FC of England and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were the closest contenders for the crown. 

A poll of CAF’s national teams’ head coaches and technical directors, members of the technical and development committee and a panel of media experts selected Salah as the continent’s outstanding footballer in 2018.  

The Egyptian received the accolade at a ceremony in Dakar, Senegal, on Tuesday evening, where he was also included in the Africa Best XI for 2018 alongside Mane and Naby Keita.  He scored 44 times during a 2017-18 campaign in which he helped his club reach the Champions League final, before then netting twice at last summer’s World Cup.
