Sadio Mane beats former teammate, Mohamed Salah, and Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen to clinch the award. He becomes the latest player to win the award after Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy won it last year.
He also played a key role for the Teranga Lions, guiding them to a World Cup slot.
Mane scored 23 goals and provided five assists during the 2021/22 season.
The Senegalese will play Bayern Munich next season after securing a summer move from Liverpool.
