Sadio Mane has turned into the tenth player to win the African Footballer of the Year award.
The Senegal captain was declared as the 2022 champ at the Confederation of African Football’s honors ceremony in Rabat, Morocco on Thursday.
Mane was in Morocco to receive his award in person, under 24 hours in the wake of making his Bayern debut in the United States.
Mane bested the vote in ahead of previous Liverpool colleague Mo Salah and Chelsea’s Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
Salah was the champion player in England’s Premier League last season, winning the Golden Boot with 23 goals and 13 assists.
Be that as it may, Mane, who passed on Liverpool to finish paperwork for Bayern in June, two times got the better of Salah at international level.
Mane’s Senegal beat Salah’s Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations final in February and afterward again in a World Cup qualification play-off in March.
Asisat Oshoala wins CAF women award for record 5th time
Super Falcons and Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala has won the fifth CAF Women’s Player of The Year Award.
The Nigerian star crushed Grace Chanda (Zambia/BIIK Kazygurt) and Ajara Nchout Njoya (Cameroon/Inter Milan) to win her fifth honor at a ceremony in Rabat, Morocco on Thursday.
Oshoala was the main Nigerian chosen one at the 2022 CAF award after Falcons’ boss Randy Waldrum, who was initially named for Coach of The Year, was dropped from the final waitlist list alongside Monday Gift, and Super Eagles team Moses Simon and Akinkunmi Amoo.
Oshoala had equaled countrywoman Perpetua Nkwocha’s fourth CAF Women’s Player of the Year Award at the 2019 Awards Gala, yet today she turned into the sole record holder for the most honor wins, in this way stepping her clout on the continent.
In spite of being injury-loaded for a huge piece of last season (90 days), Oshoala completed top scorer in the Liga Iberdrola with 20 goal in 19 appearances to turn into the main African to win the Pichichi award in Spain.
