Last year Salah, 26, became the first Egyptian player to win the best player award since the introduction of the event in 1992, and he has now joined the list of the few players who have won two awards in a row.  Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis was named the CAF Women's National Team Coach of the Year 2018.
