Five Egyptians nominated for Glo-CAF African Player of the Year awards

2015 African Cup of Nations

Five Egyptians have been nominated for the 2016 GLO-CAF African Player of the Year awards for best Africa-based and foreign-based players.

AS Roma’s Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny both represent Egypt in the 2016 Glo-CAF African Player of the Year award.

There was no place for SC Braga hitman Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’, who qualified to the UEFA Europa League quarter finals, as well as winning the Portuguese Cup in a season where he recorded a personal-high record of 15 goals for his new club.

Meanwhile Zamalek trio, Ali Gabr, Ayman Hefny and Bassem Morsi were nominated for Glo-CAF Africa Player of the Year – Based in Africa – award.

Another surprise for this award as well as the was no place for Abdallah El-Said or Ramadan Sobhi who were both instrumental in Al Ahly’s road to winning the Egyptian Premier League.

Mohamed Elneny’s 2015/16 had an excellent season, as he managed to to win the Swiss League title as well as completing a move to English giants Arsenal during the January transfer window, where they finished second in the English Premier League with the Gunners.

Mohamed Salah finished in third position in the Serie A with AS Roma as well as being the team’s top scorer in all competitions last season after scoring 15 goals.

Meanwhile Zamalek’s trio won Egypt’s Cup as well as securing a CAF Champions League final birth.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
