Mane, Salah & Aubameyang Win 2018/2019 Premier League Golden Boot

Spread the love

For the first time in the History of the premier league there are three joint winners of the Premier League Golden Boot. Three African players ended the English Premier League season as top scorers with each bagging twenty-two goals in the season under review – 2018/2019.

The three are Gabon and Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and the Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane (Senegal) and Mohamed Salah (Egypt).

At kickoff of the last round of games, Salah was the sole contender for the award. Mane scored Liverpool’s two goals on the final day to go joint top.

Aubameyang, only in his second season at the Emirates, scored twice in Arsenal’s fixture away to Burnley to also reach the twenty-two mark. Arsenal shared a photo of him having received his award.

The Golden Boot is awarded to the highest scoring player in the league just as the Golden Glove is given to the goalkeeper who keeps the most clean sheets.

Liverpool grossed 97 points but failed to win the league as winners Manchester City got one point more to retain their title. Arsenal on the other hand managed to finish fifth in Unai Emery’s first season in charge.

Liverpool and Arsenal have final season fixtures in continental competitions. Liverpool will face Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid whiles Arsenal face Chelsea in the Europa League finals in Baku.

An eyewitness has given an account on the knife attack on Arsenal stars, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac on Thursday.

The duo were chased for a mile by knife-wielding motorbike riders in an attempted daylight car-jacking in north London.

Ozil, who earns £350,000-a-week, was ambushed as he drove his black Mercedes G-Class through Childs Hill at around 5pm.

But as the thugs surrounded his SUV, Ozil’s teammate and childhood friend, Sead ‘The Tank’ Kolasinac, took them on.

Financial worker Azuka Alintah, 36, told the MailOnline: “Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives.

“He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.

“I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail.

“They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out.

“God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hacked to shreds and he clearly thought so too.

“As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off.”

The police have opened an investigation into the attack.

The goalkeeper can’t stop replaying that losing moment in the semi-final against Algeria, wishing it would’ve turned out differently somehow
Daniel Akpeyi defended his teammates from criticism following Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Algeria in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) semi-final.
The Super Eagles looked to be in with a great chance of beating Djamel Belmadi’s men to reach the competition’s final after dismissing South Africa in the quarter-final.

However, a Riyad Mahrez last-minute free-kick sent Gernot Rohr’s men crashing after Odion Ighalo had erased Willam Troost-Ekong’s own goal.

Rohr’s team faced the wrath of fans for offering precious little in Cairo, but Akpeyi believes otherwise.
