Ghana’s male senior national team Coach, Kwesi Appiah has tipped Egypt and Liverpool star, Mohammed Salah to win the CAF Africa Player of the Year award next year.
The former Chelsea and AS Roma attacking midfielder face a stiff competition from Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Africa’s football governing body [CAF] shortlisted them for the award which will be staged in Accra next year.
Nonetheless, the former Ghanaian international is convinced the Liverpool star has done enough throughout the year to win himself the prestigious award for the very first time following his blistering form both at club and international level.
Sharing his thoughts after the final announcement in Accra on Monday, Appia said “All the countries and the players CAF shortlisted are all doing very well so whoever wins deserves it.”
“I think Mohammed Salah played very this season because he assisted and scored many goals for the Egyptian national team and helped them to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and he is doing very well his club as well so if he gets it fine but at the end of the day the other competitors also deserve it if they win,” he added.
