Egyptian forward Salah has beaten Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane of Senegal and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal to become Confederation of African Football’s 2018 Player of the Year.
This is the second year in a row that the 26-year-old has been named African Footballer of the Year.
Salah scored 44 goals for Liverpool during the 2017–18 season, leading the Reds to the Champions League final before scoring twice for Egypt at the World Cup in Russia. He has scored 16 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool this season.
“I have dreamt of winning this award since I was a child, and now I have done so twice in a row,” Salah said.
Here’s how the social media is celebrating one of its favourite footy stars.
