Mane wins African Best Player for 2019, beating Salah and Mahrez

Mane wins African Best Player for 2019, beating Salah and Mahrez.

Senegal star Mane beats Salah and Mahrez to win African Player of the Year award.

The 25-year-old has become the first Senegalese to win the annual award since 2002, after finishing as runners-up in the last two years

Senegal forward Sadio Mane has been named the 2019 African Player of the Year.

The Liverpool attacker defeated his club teammate Mohamed Salah and Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez to win his first individual award on the continent.

Mane enjoyed an outstanding campaign at club and an international level last year, helping Senegal to the final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where they eventually lost to Algeria.

Last season, the talisman scored 22 goals to share the Premier League Golden Boot with Salah and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He also played a crucial role in helping Liverpool win the UEFA Champions League, Super League, and the FIFA Club World Cup last year.
