Africa’s top man: Sadio Mane

Liverpool and Senegal ace wins African Player of the Year award

AND THE WINNER IS: Sadio Mane

LIVERPOOL’S SADIO MANE has landed himself the Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) Player of the Year.

Mane has been instrumental as the Reds won the Champions League and missed out on the Premier League by just one point.

The Senegal forward beat Liverpool team-mate and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah and Manchester City’s Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez to the award.

He has scored 15 goals so far in 2019-20, with Liverpool 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

“I’m really happy and proud to win this. Football is my job, I love it,” said Mane.

“I would like to thank my family, my national team, staff, the federation and Liverpool Football Club. It’s a big day for me.”

Mane collected his award at a ceremony in Hurghada, Egypt.
