Mane scored the winning penalty as Senegal beat Egypt in a shootout in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final to lift the trophy for the first time.

The awards returned for the first time in three years after being suspended by the coronavirus pandemic.

I am very, very happy to receive the trophy this year,” Mane, 30, said as he collected his prize.

Mane beat compatriot and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as well as former Liverpool team-mate Salah, whose Egypt side lost February’s final.

I thank the Senegalese people – and dedicate this trophy to the youth of my country,” added Mane, who helped Senegal reach the World Cup and won two domestic cups with Liverpool.

Mane’s prize was one of five picked up by Senegal in a total of seven men’s categories after a night to remember for the West African nation.
