Moses Shortlisted For BBC African Footballer Of The Year Award

By Johnny Edward:
Super Eagles winger Victor Moses has been nominated for the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2017.

The announcement was made during a special live launch broadcast in London on Saturday.

Moses made the shortlist of five alongside Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Guinea and RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, Senegal and Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, and Egypt and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

Moses, who is also on a 30-man shortlist for the CAF African Football of the Year Award along the BBC nominees, won the English Premier League with Chelsea last season, playing a pivotal role.

He could become the first Nigerian player to win the award since Jay-Jay Okocha emerged winner in 2004.

The winner of this year’s award will be announced on Monday, 11 December.

  • Let’s show support to our own, victor won the premier league last year with Chelsea and qualified Nigeria for the world cup far ahead of mane and salah that won nothing

    • U b true Africa, nice one [email protected] chukwuebuka him again

    • What are you both saying? @ Chucks and co. Are you guyz saying aside club side,Moses has not been doing well for the national team for you to have voted Salah and Mane as the best? What’s their national records since this 2017 compared to that of Moses?

  • It will be a thing of joy for me if Victor moses win it. But am afraid of Salah

  • I see Moses conquering the rest of the nominee as he was hugely involved in the Chelsea’s success last season and as well as Nigeria’s qualifications for next year’s world cup in Russia. For me he’s the favourite to take home the ultimate award.

    Taaah! Which Salah I beg, which mane? Moses is far ahead of dis guys, sentiment apart, Moses won EPL moses shown like a million stars for our road to russia so what are we talking about here, if Moses fail to win den I’m afraid ojoro de am

  • PA-JAMES 2 years ago

    I see him bringing it to nigeria

  • fear is, they do consider nations cup too and for two editions now we haven’t participated. I pray they don’t look to that.

  • Moses is one of the best players in African he needs our support.

  • Moses all the way!!!

    @Sean when George Okpong Weah won World footballer of the year in 1995 Liberia was no where both in African football and world football so its still possible for Moses to win despite Nigeria not participating in two previous editions of nations cup

  • Moses is more consistent than the others. He performs well for club and country. The same cannot be said about the other players. Sallah is seen as Egypt’s best player because the Egypt national team is not full of stars. So, no big player to overshadow him. If he was a Nigerian player, the names of big players would have deflated his veneration. So, I extol Moses for thriving in a team that has big players. Moses for the African POTY award.

  • Victor Moses is d best among d nominees. Heaven n earth has endorsed for u moses.

  • Moses, the rising rose Of Nigeria, success to u all the way to Caf player of the year, though i’m fearful of Salah. Sentiments apart he poses real threat to moses. After a fair and close fight moses will carry the day.

  • Dis list is hot

  • All dey way Moses

  • Salah is scoring in almost all the matches he is playing. Moses can only win based on the team he is playing but for personal quality and effort, give it to the Egyptian.

  • Moses all the way

  • Hard work really matters in dis life, txns to Chelsea coach konte and super eagles coach Rorh for giving moses playing tym to go dis far.wishe u good luck Victor Moses to win dis award.

  • E deserve it

  • I congratulated Moses last year in advance for dis, surely it is his time

  • D winner is Moses

  • I am afraid sallah has never loss any award he is nominated for

  • Talking of consistent performance at the very pinnacle of soccer competitions….both club and country level…I think moses should nick it this time around…..he was a consistent and integral performer for both club and country

  • Let’s all vote, I’ve voted.

  • Nobody poses any threat to moses, d difference is clear. Moses won d EPL, got to the final of the fa and contributed massively to our qualification for the world cup. What has salah won apart from qualifying Egypt to the world cup? Nobody, not even aubameyang or salah can stop moses from being African best.

  • #moses for the award #well deserved

  • Victor all the way

  • victor moses, you’re the best for bbc-african footballer-year-award.

  • Give that award to MOSES VICTOR.

    Moses is head and shoulders above the pack of nominees. Consider his team performance in club and country. Okocha lost out on these. Let’s vote for him pls.


  • Which day are dey doing the vote?

  • Funke , this voting is for B.B.C. African Footballer of the year . It is different from C.A.F. African footballer of the year .
    I believe MOSES will win theC.A.F. award as Keita has already won the B.B.C.award .
