Liverpool and Senegal super Star, Sadio Mane was crowned as Africa’s best player for 2019.
He has been voted in the top 3 past editions of Africa’s most prestigious awards.
RSTV’s Sopirinye Jaja tells us more:
Despite finishing third and winning the top goal scorer awards in the last AFCON in Egypt, No Nigerian player was selected into Africa’s all star team, not even Leicester’s city hard man, Wilfred Ndidi could make it into Africa’s super 11.
It also appears, Nigeria’s oil and gas company, AITEO is no longer part of the CAF awards. There is cold war between CAF president and Nigeria’s FA president.
Mr Pinnick is a close friend of the AITEO group owner.
Last year, Amaju Pinnick was ousted as Vice president of CAF- A decision that that shocked many in African football .
Mr. Pinnick was one of the few arrow heads who joined forces with Ahmad Ahmad to defeat former President of CAF, Isa Hayatou.
