African stars joint winners of premier league Golden Boot

It’s an all African Golden Boot in England, as Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored final-day goals to share the Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah.

Aubameyang’s double for Arsenal at Burnley means he joins Salah and his Liverpool team-mate Mane, who scored against Wolves, on 22 goals.

Salah also won the prize last season.

It is the lowest winning total since 2010-11, when Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez shared the Boot with 20 goals each.

Gabon forward Aubameyang who scored twice after the interval at Turf Moor said: “I share this trophy with two other guys I like, great players and African. We are representing Africa, that’s cool.

“I am happy we won, and I am sharing this trophy with two other guys I like. My team-mates knew about the Golden Boot, I said nothing. I did not want them to play and only focus on me. I am a team player.”
