:EGY Mohamed Salah ( Liverpool ) is the CAF best African player of 2017 

 

Congrats, I would vote him the best player in the world. and I'm not kidding, (Ronaldo/Messi are boring lol) he is winning matches for Liverpool which is an average team without him.

 That's very surprising to me , but thanks very much. i hope he can continue his rhythm and win something big next year with Liverpool .  maybe a top 10 finish for him would be a very big achievement . for Messi and Ronaldo it became very boring actually that those 2 must been put in yearly shortlist and must win , hopefully some other player can win it this year , i see Neymar is the closest to challenge them , especially if he can win CL or WC

well not really, there was a vote in a popular football show in Iran (show about European football) about the best player in 2017-2018 half season in European football and Salah came second behind Messi.
