Sadio Mané has been crowned the African Player of the Year for the first time in his career.

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.

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

2019 season was quite good for Sadio Mané as he played 63 games, scored 35 goals, made 11 assists and won 3 trophies.
