The other top African stars for the past week are Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, Cedric Bakambu from DR Congo, Salomon Kalou of Cote d’Ivoire and Algeria’s Hicham Belkaroui.

Salah netted an equaliser for Roma against Bologna, Bakambu aka ‘Bakambut’ was on target in both the Europa League and La Liga for Villarreal in the week under review and Kalou scored his 14th goal for Hertha Berlin against Hannover in the German Bundesliga.
