BREAKING NEWS: Mane is Africa’s top player


Sadio Mane has claimed his first CAF African Player of the Year award, holding off competition from Mohamed Salah and Riyad Mahrez.

Mane was a standout player as Liverpool went all the way in the 2018-19 Champions League, while he has also enjoyed a strong start to the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.

The Senegal international placed in the top three in each of the previous three years, finishing runner-up to Salah in 2017 and 2018, and third in 2016, when Mahrez came first.
