'Greatest Egyptian footballer ever?' - Salah eyes historic goal

Posted January 08, 2018

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah may have been named the African Footballer of the Year for 2017, but the Liverpool forward has set another target for himself saying he wants to win the award for four times.

The Egypt worldwide winger scooped the prestigious award by fending off competition from Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The talented fast winger helped the Egyptian national team qualify for the World Cup finals to be held next summer in Russian Federation.

In 29 games this season on account of Salah for 23 goals and 8 assists.

He also had a hand in all seven of the goals that took the Pharaohs to qualification for their first World Cup since 1990.

"I want to tell them to never stop dreaming, never stop believing".

Salah received the price at an award ceremony held at the Confederation of African Football in Accra, Ghana.

"This award is a big award for me ... it's a special moment for me in my career".

The Liverpool winger, who was on Wednesday evening named the 2017 CAF African Player of the Year, has enjoyed an outstanding first season at Anfield.

Sadio Mane has cleared the air on a reported rift with Liverpool teammate, Mohamed Salah.

Will he step up on the world stage in football's most elite competition?

An emotional and proud Salah spared a few words and dedicated his award to the kids in Africa. 2017 was an unbelievable year for me. "They are evaluated after every match and the best are designated matches like the CAF Champions League final".
