The 2019 African Gold Balloon Ceremony rewards the best African player during the 2018/2019 season. It will take place this Tuesday, January 7, 2019 in Egypt. Sadio Mané seems to be the favorite of this edition especially since these competitors will be absent.
CAN 2019’s best player, Riyad Mahrez and Liverpool Reds forward Mohamed Salah are likely to miss the award ceremony for the African gold ball. The Algerian international has declared that he must take part in a match of his club Manchester City the same day. On the other hand, the reasons for the absence of Sadio Mané’s teammate, Mohamed Salah, are not known at the moment.
The Senegalese people are convinced that Sadio Mané will be sacred, and they are already planning a ceremony at the Grand Théâtre National Doudou Ndiaye Rose to pay homage to their number 10.
