Senegal's Sadio Mane is the Confederation of African Football's Player of the Year. Mane, 27, beat his teammate Mohamed Salah to win. Mane helped his team Liverpool win the Champions League in 2019. He was prolific in attack and scored 30 goals in the 2018-19 season. This meant he was co-winner of last season's Premier League Golden Boot. This is awarded to the league's top goalscorer. Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala was the women's Player of the Year.

Mane was ecstatic at winning. It is the fourth time he has been shortlisted. He said at the awards ceremony: "I'm really happy and proud to win this. Football is my job. I love it. I would like to thank my family, my national team, staff, the federation and Liverpool." He said the Senegalese people would be pleased with his win, saying: "They will be glad watching me win this award, especially the people in my village whom I promised I would win."
