<p class=""><strong>Liverpool </strong>star <strong>Mohamed Salah</strong> has been named <strong>2018 African Player of the Year</strong> for a second successive time at a gala awards ceremony in Senegal Tuesday.</p>

<p class="">The sharpshooter beat fellow English <strong>Premier League</strong> stars, Liverpool team-mate <strong>Sadio Mane</strong> from Senegal and Gabonese <strong>Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang</strong> of <strong>Arsenal </strong>to the award.</p>

<p class="">Consistent scorer Salah has already won the <strong>2018 BBC African Footballer</strong> of the Year prize and it was no surprise to see him add to his collection of individual honours in Dakar.</p>

<p class="">Salah becomes the first player from the north of the continent to claim back-to-back titles.</p>

<p class="">Ivorian Yaya Toure, <strong>Samuel Eto’o</strong> from Cameroon and Senegalese <strong>El Hadji Diouf</strong> achieved the feat in a competition first staged 48 years ago with Malian <strong>Salif Keita</strong> voted number one.</p>

<p class="">Manchester City midfielder Toure, the younger brother of former <strong>Arsenal </strong>defender <strong>Kolo</strong>, went on to finish first four times in a row from 2011.</p>

<p class="">Eto’o and Ghanaian <strong>Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew</strong> are also four-time Player of the Year winners, but not in consecutive years.</p>

<p class="">Paris-based <strong><em>France Football</em></strong> magazine organised the annual award until the mid-1990s when the <strong>Confederation of African Football</strong> (CAF) took over.</p>

<p class="">Votes from national team and selected club coaches, CAF officials and unnamed ‘experts’ count toward deciding who lifts the trophy.</p>

<p class="">Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season, his first at Anfield after moving from Italian <strong>Serie A</strong> outfit <strong>Roma</strong>.</p>

<h1>Slow start</h1>

<p class="">After a slow start to the 2018/2019 campaign, the right-side attacker has netted 13 goals, one less than Aubameyang and <strong>Tottenham Hotspur</strong> and England star <strong>Harry Kane</strong>.</p>

<p class="">The Egyptian also scored the winning goal against <strong>Napoli </strong>at Anfield last month that took Liverpool to the knockout phase of the <strong>Champions League </strong>at the expense of the Italian club.</p>

<p class="">Salah had less success with Egypt last year as injury ruled him out of the loss to Uruguay at the start of the<strong> World Cup</strong> in Russia.</p>

<p class="">He did score against both Russia and Saudi Arabia, but the north Africans were beaten in both matches and exited without securing even one point.</p>

<p class="">Later in the year, Salah scored twice but failed to convert two penalties as the Pharaohs ran riot at home to Niger in a <strong>2019 Africa Cup of Nations</strong> qualifier, winning 6-0.</p>

<p class="">Aubameyang, the son of former Gabon star Pierre, has made the top three for the fifth successive year, finishing second in 2014, then first, second and third.</p>

<p class="">Mane was third behind Algerian <strong>Riyad Mahrez</strong> and Aubameyang in 2016 and second last year, 118 points adrift of Salah.</p>
