Salah retains CAF best player award

Salah voted African Footballer of the Year

The announcement was made by CAF who are the African's football governing body as the Egypt worldwide defeated Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal star Emerick Aubameyang to win the award.

The vote was decided by the technical directors and head coaches of the 56 CAF member associations.
