Egypt forward Mohamed Salah may have been named the African Footballer of the Year for 2017, but the Liverpool forward has set another target for himself saying he wants to win the award for four times.
Salah beat Liverpool team mate Sadio Mane of Senegal and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to win the award on Thursday night in Accra, Ghana.
Salah helped Egypt reach the African Nations Cup final and qualify for this year’s World Cup.
He also made an African record move to Liverpool and scored 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League club in 2017.
Meanwhile, Salah has said his country will do “something special” in the World Cup in Russia later this year.
Egypt are playing in their first World Cup finals since 1990, with Salah playing a vital part in their qualification, scoring both goals in their 2-1 win over Congo last October that put them into the finals.
