Another day another award! With a mouth-watering 44 goals in 52 games last season, Mohamed Salah was the clear choice for the BBC’s African Player of the Year. It is his to lose!

Salah hasn’t scored quite at the same rate in the second half of 2018, but he’s still managed 13 goals in 25 matches in all competitions so far, with a recent hat-trick against Bournemouth, it seems he is firmly back on his feet. It’s Salah’s second-consecutive year winning the award from the BBC.

“It’s a great feeling to win again. I’m happy and I would like to win it also next year!” Salah said, via the BBC. “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.”

It has been a different year for Liverpool this year even without Salah scoring nearly a goal a game, he’s helped his side to the top of the Premier League thanks to improved defensive performances, with this in mind, it has put a lot let pressure on Salah who might have buckled at the start of the season when the media started to question his form.

With the champions league final firmly behind him now, the hangover from the World Cup, it looks like he is fine and dandy…


  1. As soon as I take him out of my fantasy team he was bound to start scoring! If he keeps on with these performances he might eclipse the great Nwankwo Kanu one day!
