Mohamed Salah Named BBC African Footballer Of The Year

  • Liverpool Spurs edge Inter Milan Napoli to advance

Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game in the final group encounter as Liverpool secured their place in the last 16.

"It's obviously going to be hard because they've got some great players but that's part and parcel of being a defender in the Premier League".

He also predicted Barcelona to play a draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night in the Champions League fixture at Camp Nou.

At Anfield, Mohamed Salah's solitary goal saw Liverpool beat Napoli 1-0 to book their spot in the tournament's next round.

He becomes emotional, savouring the moment, before the man next to him leans over and begins talking in his ear after they had embraced.

The Egypt and Liverpool forward beat club teammate Sadio Mane, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mehdi Benatia and Thomas Partey to retain the individual award he won past year.


His tweet read: "Nice to read all comments about the video".

"When people are shouting at me I take it because they want to make me better and their mistake they take it as well if I shout to them".

Almost three million people have watched a clip on Twitter of his cousin Stephen leaning over to tell him who netted for the Reds, sending the pair's touching exchange viral. I can see a little bit but not great.

"They needed one goal so it could fall [apart], but in the end we did well and we got the job done". It is like in football when the sporting director or the club president says "no, the manager is going to be here and we trust in him", and next game [he is] out.

The ex-Manchester United player set an unwanted personal record in Champions League group stages this campaign, bagging just one goal in six games.

The quarter-final first legs are on April 9/10 followed by the second legs on April 16/17, while the semi-final first legs are on April 30/May 1 before the second legs on May 7/8.
