The Egyptian succeeds Algerian Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City as holder of the most prized CAF individual award.

"Winning this award is a dream come true", said Salah as he picked up his award. "2017 was an unbelievable year for me", Salah said at the awards ceremony held at Ghanaian capital Accra on Thursday. It was very hard to explain the moments. I had a fantastic time, especially with the national team where we qualified to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

Salah, who has scored 23 goals for Liverpool this season, beat his Liverpool teammate from Senegal Sadio Mane and popular Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to emerge the top African soccer player.

The award is traditionally voted for by the head coaches or technical directors of all Africa's national teams.

Salah, was also voted the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year in December.

Head coach of the Black Stars, James Akawsi Appiah says Mohammed Salah deserves to win the CAF African players of the year award.

Salah has enjoyed a sensational start to his Liverpool FC career after scoring 17 times in 21 games in the Premier League this season. He netted the stoppage time penalty against Congo, which sent the Egyptian team to the world cup competition.

Salah was the central figure for Egypt as they finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations. The award is also aimed at improving the development of soccer in Africa.
