Mohamed Salah has been named as African Player of the Year by the International Federation of History and Statistics (IFFHS) IFFHS.
The Egyptian won the prestigious award thanks to his brilliant performance with Liverpool in the year under review.
Salah beat Algerian Riyad Mahrez and Moroccan Hakim Ziyech to the prize.
This comes after Salah ranked seventh in the 2021 Ballon d’Or – an award for the best player in the world.
Earlier in November, Salah also won the English Football Association’s award in northwest England “Ladbrokes North West Football”, for best player in the English Premier League for the 2021 season.

The best coach on the continent went to Pitso Mosimane who manages Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
South African Mosimane won the award after he led Al Ahly team to win the CAF Champions League, the CAF Super Cup, and the Egypt Cup.
