The Egyptian shrugged off competition from the 2016 victor Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang who plays for German side Borrusia Dortmund and Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane for the flagship award of the night.

The 25-year-old striker was quite instrumental in assisting the Egyptian national team the "Pharaohs" to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, after missing the mark for close to two decades.

He also made an African record move to Liverpool and scored 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League club in 2017 so far.

"It's never easy to win a big award like that", Salah said on Thursday.

He is now the Premier League's second top scorer with 17 goals, and has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country.

Salah, who was voted the BBC African Footballer of the Year in December, has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country.

Salah dedicated the award to the children of Africa and Egypt, urging them to follow their dreams and belief.

The Confederation of African football summed up in 2017. He netted the stoppage time penalty against Congo, which sent the Egyptian team to the world cup competition.

Although Egypt lost in the African Cup final to Cameroon at the beginning of the year, the team returned to the tournament after seven years without qualifying and made it all the way to the final.

Egypt has produced great players among others Mohamed Aboutrika, Hossam Hassan and Ahmed Mido.

Egypt was voted the team of the year, with manager Hector Cuper winning Africa's coach of the year.

Ahead of the awards ceremony, CAF president Ahmad Ahmad told a media conference why the Africa-based Player of the Year and Referee of the Year awards had been scrapped.

"We are happy to play together. They are evaluated after every match and the best are designated matches like the CAF Champions League final".
