Salah Or Mane For CAF Award? Klopp Responds

With both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah nominated for the CAF African Player Of the Year award, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has shared his thoughts on who should win.

Click through the gallery to see the last five African Player of the Year winners.

The final nominees were from 10 to three players just before Christmas as Mane, Salah and Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez making the cut.

Salah has won the award for the last two years and Mahrez picked up the award in 2016, but Mane is yet to lift the coveted individual honour.

Klopp, however, feels that both his Reds stars are deserving of the award but understands only one will walk with the accolade.

When aksed who should win the award, Klopp was quoted as saying by Express, "I have no clue. 

"I love them both, so for me it would be easy – there would be two first places, easy as that.

"I got this week another award so for somebody who is not believing in individual awards, especially not for managers, I got really a lot this year.

"They are both incredible players, so I don’t know what you would decide but somebody will decide it and they both would deserve it. That’s it."
