Liverpool's Mohamed Salah named African footballer of the year

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah named African footballer of the year

Exemplified by their 0-0 draw against Chievo and just 27 goals scored in the league so far, Roma's lack of other regular goalscorers is becoming a cause for concern, especially since the new Liverpool star was never replaced.

This is the first time Salah has been nominated for African Footballer of the Year and he becomes the first Egyptian to win it since Mohamed Aboutrika in 2008.

Salah played a big role in the seven goals that brought Egypt to the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and has scored 13 goals in Liverpool since the start of the season. Salah, who arrived on Merseyside this summer from Roma, is Liverpool's most expensive signing ever and also probably the buy of the summer.

He added, "I want to be the best Egyptian ever so I work hard".

Salah beat off competition from Nigeria's Victor Moses, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon, Naby Keita of Guinea and Senegal's Sadio Mane.

"I have to thank everyone, my team-mates, the people I work with".

Stock investors acquired 25,574 call options on the company. (NYSE:COTY) on Thursday, September 29 to "Neutral" rating. Wetherby Asset Incorporated stated it has 0.08% of its portfolio in Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC).


"Last season I had a very good season with Roma, so I need to thank my teammates [there] and also my teammates in the national team".

Salah succeeds Algeria's Riyad Mahrez, who clinched the title in 2016 following his exploits with Leicester City during their remarkable Premier League-winning campaign.

Real Madrid C.F. president Florentino Perez has shown huge interest in Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and hopes to lure him away from the Reds next summer, according to Spanish reports.

Salah, 25 is also in the race for the African Player of the Year award to be awarded by the African Football Confederation (CAF) on January 4 in Accra, Ghana.

"I always follow my own way and I want everyone in Egypt to follow my way".
