Senegal's Sadio Mane is the Confederation of African Football's Player of the Year. Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala is the African Women's Player of the Year. Mane, 27, beat Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah to win the award. He helped his team Liverpool win the Champions League in 2019. Mane was prolific in attack and scored 30 goals in the 2018-19 season. He was also the co-winner of last season's Premier League Golden Boot, which is awarded to the league's top goalscorer. He shared this award with Salah and Arsenal's striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Mane was ecstatic at winning. He finished second and third in the previous two seasons. It is the fourth time he has been shortlisted. He told journalists 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 added: "I would like to thank all of the Senegalese who supported me during my journey....They will be glad watching me win this award, especially the people in my village whom I promised I would win. I cannot describe my feelings...and emotions."
