BBC to announce victor of African Footballer of the Year today (Monday)

Mohamed Salah

Salah, the current Premier League top scorer with 13 goals, has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country.

After receiving the award, Salah said: "I'm very happy to win this award, it's a special feeling for me".

Salah, who arrived on Merseyside this summer from Roma, is Liverpool's most expensive signing ever and also probably the buy of the summer. "I feel like I had a great year, so I'm very happy".

He has beaten Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Chelsea's Victor Moses for the award.

Salah accomplished what his predecessors, Mohamed Barakat in 2005 and Mohamed Abou-Treika in 2008, achieved and became the third Egyptian player to conquer the award.

"I would also like to win it next year".
