BBC Announce African Footballer Of The Year

Aside from Moses, Gabon's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Guinea's Naby Keita, and Sadio Mane of Senegal were the other beaten finalists for 2017.

After receiving the award, he told BBC SPORT: "I'm very happy to win this award, it's a special feeling for me. I would also like to win it next year!"

"I would like to thank my Liverpool team-mates and I also had a good season with Roma so I have to thank my team-mates there and my team-mates in the national team", said Salah.

Barakat and Treika both won the award while playing for Al Ahly, making the Salah the first Egyptian to win the award playing overseas.

Manager Jurgen Klopp presented the award to the 25-year old Egyptian, who has scored 13 Premier League goals this season.

Salah is the first Egyptian victor of the award since Mohamed Barakat won it in 2005 and the winger says he hopes to go down as the best player his country has ever had.

Salah is now the third consecutive Premier League star to win the prolific award. "I work hard and try to be different from them".

Since I left Egypt, in my mind, I want to be the best Egyptian ever.

2017 really has been the year of Mohamed Salah. I had the opportunity to work with a few outstanding players and I am happy that it is now with Mo.
