The Egyptian player will participate with his team at the FA Cup fourth round against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night and he will leave Liverpool to attend CAF awards ceremony on Tuesday night in Senegal.
Salah is nominated for CAF player of the year award alongside his teammate in Liverpool, Sadio Mane, and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The shortlist includes the same nominees from last season when Salah achieved the award for the first time.
Salah has had an amazing season with Liverpool as he led his team to UEFA Champions League Final against Real Madrid but he only played 25 minutes and left the pitch after suffering an injury and followed his team’s 3-1 loss from the stands.
The Egyptian scored 44 goals last season at all competitions, including 32 goals at the league that granted him the Premier League Golden Boot award.
