Fresh off his exploits at the Confederation of African Football awards where he was named African Footballer of the Year for 2017 on Thursday (Jan 4), Egypt global Salah is the player on the lips of every Liverpool fan.

Salah secured the price ahead of his Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mané of Senegal and the Borussia Dortmund and Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Egyptian had a sublime year as he led the national side to the African Cup of Nations but failed to win the competition in the final match against Cameroon.

In Salah's 60 official games in 2017 for Egypt, Roma and Liverpool, he managed 58 goal contributions - 39 goals and 19 assists.

"It was very hard to explain the moment, to qualify to the World Cup after 28 years", he said after the ceremony in Ghana.

He also had a hand in all seven of the goals that took the Pharaohs to their first World Cup since 1990 - assisting two and scoring five, including the stoppage-time penalty against Congo that saw them qualify them for Russian Federation. "I want to tell them never to stop believing and dreaming".

Salah's victory capped a clean sweep of the three main African football awards for Egypt. Egypt won team of the year and its manager, Hector Cuper, Africa's coach of the year.

"This is a big award for me, a special moment in my career".

Liverpool's Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah was awarded, in Accra, Ghana where the CAF 2017 ceremony was held.

Victory on Thursday completed an awards hat-trick for Salah, who was named BBC African Footballer of the Year in December and Arab Player of the Year earlier this week.

The annual event also aims to encourage and enhance the performances of sports persons to maintain the high standard and quality of football administration and management in Africa.

We hope one day the best player will be based in Africa.
