Pic: Liverpool fans pumped for next season after BBC reveals African Footballer of the Year nominations

Liverpool fans are absolutely buzzing after BBC Africa released their nominees for the African Player of the Year yesterday.

With the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane being the current Liverpool players to be a part of the shortlisted contenders, the 5 men list also included Naby Keita who is set to join the Reds next year from RB Leipzig.

Needless to say that the deadly combo of Mane and Salah, both 25 years old, has been a lethal force for the Liverpool this season and to add to this a dynamic 22-year-old midfielder like Naby Keita, the future is indeed bright for Merseyside outfit.

Imagining the three combining with the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino in Klopp’s high throttle style of football is something that has already pumped up the Liverpool fans for next season.

Check out the full nominations below –
