Liverpool Dominates BBC's African Footballer Of The Year Shortlist


Cameroon's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations victor Arnaud Djoum was part of the panel to discuss the nominees, as were Nigeria's 1996 Olympic football champion Emanuel Amuneke and Jean Sseninde of Uganda's national team and Crystal Palace ladies squad.

The nomination follows another he received earlier this month for the African Footballer of the Year award, organised by CAF, the continent's governing body.

The BBC will announce the award victor on Monday, December 11.

Female footballer and Nigerian worldwide Asisat Lamina Oshoala MON has queried the exclusion of female nominee as voting for the BBC's African Player of the Year prize opens.

Mane has been a revelation since signing for Liverpool last season.

The 22-year-old scored eight goals and made seven others en route to being voted the best midfielder in the division and earning an African record transfer fee to Liverpool, who he will join next July.

Mane's fine form for Liverpool has carried over to the global stage as the winger helped Senegal qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2002.

Last season, Moses helped his club to top the Premier League as well as notch an FA Cup runner-up finish.

Moses was a nominee back in 2013.

Salah was included in the list following impressive performances on both club and national team level.

Victor Moses equally played a great role as Nigeria came the first country from africa to qualify for 2018 world cup in Russian Federation.
