While Mohamed Salah won the award back in 2017, he’s still one of the favorite to take home the award.
However, his Liverpool team mate and Senegalese star player Sadio Mane also has a better chance to win the award.
The likes of Riyad Mahrez(2016), Yaya Touré (2015 and 2013); and Yacine Brahimi (2014) have won the prestigious award.
