..As Oshoala wins CAF best female player of the year
Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mane has been crowned African Footballer of the Year for the second time.
The Senegal international, 30, received the prestigious honour at an awards ceremony on Thursday. Mane, who joined Bayern earlier this summer, won the award ahead of former Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
Mane scored 23 goals for Liverpool last season to help them win the FA Cup and EFL Cup. The Reds also reached the Champions League final – losing 1-0 to Real Madrid – and finished just a point behind champions Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
This is as Super Falcon striker, Asisat Oshoala, has been crowned 2022 CAF women’s ‘Player of the Year.’
The 27-year-old was announced the winner of the gong in the gala held in Rabat, Morrocco, on Thursday.
With this win, Oshoala becomes the first player in history to win five African Player of the Year awards.
