Egypt forward Mohamed Salah was named African Footballer of the Year for 2017, finishing ahead of his Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mané of Senegal and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Salah, 25, helped Egypt reach the African Nations Cup final and qualify for this year’s World Cup. He also made an African record £36.9m move to Liverpool and scored 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League club in 2017.

Salah is the second Egyptian to win the award after Mahmoud Al Khatib in 1983.
