Liverpool’s striker Mohamed Salah was chosen as Africa’s best performer in 2018, according to the BBC.

This year, in addition to Egyptian hero Salah, the prestigious individual award was also claimed by Mehdi Benatia from Juventus (Morocco), Kalidou Koulibali from Napoli (Senegal), the Senegalese teammate of Mohamed, Sadio Mane, and Thomas Partey from Atletico (Ghana).

Voting on the BBC website determined that Salah deserved more than any other that award in the outgoing year. The audience paid tribute to the success of Mohamed, who scored 44 goals in 52 matches of his debut season for Liverpool.

Moreover, Mo Salah helped his club to finish in the top 4 of the Premier League and reach the Champions League’s final, and the national team of Egypt – for the first time since 1990 to enter the World Cup.
