Mane addresses reports of Salah rift at Liverpool

Player of the year in Africa was the midfielder "Liverpool" and the national team of Egypt Mohammed Salah, who won the vote against seven-time breakaway.

The 25-year-old Salah had a memorable year, first as part of the Egypt team that made the African Cup of Nations final in February.

Salah who joined Liverpool from As Roma at the start of the season has scored 17 Premier League goals this term. Egypt had been absent from the World Cup for 28 years. He was also instrumental to Egypt's qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. "I had wonderful moments at Roma and Liverpool", Salah remarked after receiving the award.

While the attacker was ruled out of the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round as he collected his award in Ghana's capital Accra, Salah was still all smiles with his prize on a flight back to England.

Sadio Mane has sought to rubbish reports suggesting that he does not see eye to eye with Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah.

"I think we have a good team and we did well in the African Cup and the qualification for the World cup, everybody saw that".

Other award winners included Women's Footballer of the Year Asisat Oshoala of Nigeria and Youth Player of the Year Patson Daka of Zambia.

Following an eye-catching year for both club and country, the former Chelsea attacker now hopes to one day go down as Egypt's best ever.

Salah was the central figure for Egypt as they finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Ahead of the awards ceremony, CAF president Ahmad Ahmad told a media conference why the Africa-based Player of the Year and Referee of the Year awards had been scrapped.

Shortlists had been drawn up for both awards when the CAF executive committee made a decision to dump them, initially without offering any explanations.
