It marks the second time head coaches and captains of the CAF senior national teams have voted for Mane to win the annual award — he last won in 2019 before the coronavirus pandemic put a pause on the ceremony for three years.
A well-deserved double for the Senegalese King
Sadio Mane is the continent's best footballer for a second time, tying Mo Salah.
The Senegalese player won the African Cup of Nations, the country's first, and was named the tournament's best player. The triumph also secured a ticket to the World Cup ticket for the Teranga Lions.
Mane enjoyed another stellar year at Liverpool, winning the FA Cup and Carabao Cup. The 30-year-old signed for Bavarian giants Bayern Munich this summer.
