Mo Salah Wins African Player Of The Year, Celebrates By Dancing With The Award

To the surprise of absolutely no-one, Mo Salah won the African Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year.

After a record-breaking 44-goal season for Liverpool in 2017/18 where he won the Premier League Golden Boot and guided the Reds to the Champions League final, Salah was awarded yet another prize from the CAF for his sensational performances.


The Egyptian King collected his award at a ceremony in Senegal and ended up dancing with teammate Sadio Mane and a bunch people wearing traditional African dress.

With his trophy in hand, Salah throws some shapes that you've most likely seen at a family wedding at some point in your life.

It's very, very awkward but yet so hilariously brilliant at the same time.

While Salah might not have great rhythm on the dancefloor, he has no issue dancing around opposition defenders on the pitch - abolishing the whole the idea he's a 'one-season wonder' by notching 16 goals in 29 games this season.
