El-Hadji Diouf reveals his choice for 2017 African Player of the Year
Retired Senegalese footballer, El-Hadji Diouf has made his input on who he thinks should win the 2017 African Player of the Year award.
The 36 year old was part of the historic Senegalese side that reached the 2002 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals. He also reached one AFCON final with his country.
El-Hadji Diouf, who played for Liverpool between 2002 and 2005, was conflicted on his preferred choice for the 2017 African Player of the Year award. He was torn between his country-mate, Mane, and a star of his former club.
“I want Mane to win but Salah is the best. Salah’s performances in the last three months make him one of the best in the world.”
Mohamed Salah has had a brilliant start to his Liverpool career; capping off a year that began with reaching the AFCON final and qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
Diouf is a former winner of the CAF African Player of the Year Award. He won it in, successive years, 2001 and 2002 for his role with his national team.
