Brilliant Mohammed Salah Defends BBC African Footballer of Year Award

Egypt and Liverpool goal monger Mohammed Salah has been named the BBC African footballer of the year for the second year after another stellar performance across the 2018 calendar year.

The Anfeild based goal poacher racked home an impressive 44 goals in 52 outing for Liverpool last season to mark his return to English football.

Salah became the first player to defend the BBC African footballer of the year after the legendary Austin Azuka Jay Jay Okocha.

The Egyptian icon shook off competition from Ghana’s Thomas Partey, Mehdi Benatia, Riyadh Mahrez and a host of other top performing stars in the African continent for the individual gong.

A total of over 650,000 were recorded in the voting period with the left footed monster surging top with a landslide win.

“It’s a great feeling to win again. I’m happy and I would like to win it also next year.

“There have been many good moments in 2018,” he added. “The game against  Roma at Anfield [Champions League semi-final first leg] was unbelievable. I’m scoring goals and helping the team to get the points to be top of the league. That’s always a great feeling”, Salah told BBC

The former Chelsea and AS Roma attacker also led the line for Egypt in the World Cup qualifiers with 5 goals and 1 assist to end their global hoodoo since 1990 with a place at the 2018 football roaster in Russia.
