Mohamed Salah has won the African Player of the Year award. The Liverpool star has enjoyed an excellent campaign since moving to Anfield in a £36m deal.

Salah has scored 22 times already this term and also secured Egypt’s place at this summer’s World Cup.

He jetted out to Ghana with teammate Sadio Mane just 24 hours before the FA Cup clash with Everton, pipping him to the CAF award with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in third. But Salah, who also won the BBC African Player of the Year, won’t be involved at Anfield due to injury…
