Sadio Mane.
The beating of Liverpool's teammate Mohammed Salah and Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez by Senegalese forward Sadio Mane has paved way for him to win the Award of 2019 CAF African Player of the Year!
The annual awards ceremony was staged in Hurghada.
Mane was a finalist in the previous three editions of the CAF Player of the Year, but never went home with the coveted piece of silverware!
He was Senegal's main man at the 2019 AFCON where he netted three goals against the Teranga Lions' to the final where they lost by a solitary goal to Algeria.
For his stunts, Mane was an integral part of the team that beat Benin and Tunisia in quarters and semis respectively.
He netted a brace in the 3 -0 group phase victory over Kenya and added one more round of 16 1-0 win over Uganda.
Mane was just as sensational as he was for Senegal when it came to his club, Liverpool. He had importantly aided them to the UEFA Champions League title for the first time since 2005.
Among the other secure goal victories are; Bayern Munich in a 3-1 victory, in the English Premier League, where he shared the Golden Boot crown with Salah and Arsenal's Gabonese frontman Pierre Emerick, all three having netted 22 times against their respective clubs. 39 goals were scored across all competitions for Liverpool by Mane in the 2018 - 2019 season.
In the opening UEFA Super Cup, Mane scored twice in a 2 -2 draw with Chelsea, a game they won with 5 -4 on penalties.
At the just concluded FIFA Club, World Cup in Doha, Qatar, Mane assisted for Roberto Firmino's winning goal in the final against Flamengo.
Mane, the Senegalese goal man was also in the top five for the Ballon d'Or, a crown eventually won by the skilful Argentine player, Lionel Messi.
