Who Is The Next African Best Player Of The Year?

Who Is The Next African Best Player Of The Year?

–Does Vincent Enyeama Or Ahmed Musa deserve this 2014 CAF Award?

The Confederation of African Football have released a list of 25 players in contention for the 2014 African Player of the Year prize.


Two Super Eagles players who shone for the Nigerian national team as well as their European clubs in the time under review; Vincent Enyeama (Lille FC of France) and Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow of Russia) are amongst the gladiators for the CAF award.

Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick, has backed either of the two Eagles star to win the award despite the fact that Manchester City and Ivory Coast superstar midfielder Yaya Toure remains the favourite to win.


Do you think Enyeama or Musa will beat Toure to the punch?

Do you support Pinnick’s verdict that the club and 2014 World Cup forms of Enyeama and Musa are enough for one of the Nigerian stars to be crowned the continent’s best player?

Or do you see Toure emerging the African Footballer of the Year again; after previously winning the award on three occasions. A feat only achieved thus far by Cameroon’s Samuel Etoo?

Who does the cap fit? Get into the act and ‘vote’ for your CAF Player of the Year winner. Give reasons for your choice.

    Vincent deserved to be Afican king in football if his sterling performance and the current form is anything to go by, but football enthusiats knows the intriques, hose trading and intricacy that always comes to play in selecting the player of this magnitude, i hope luck will smiles on Eyeama this time and emege winner, but if otherwise no ill feeling, the guy has distinguished himself, the truth must be told, the facts and records are there.

    Vincent Enyeama is indeed one of the best short stopper in the world, an outstanding player and a very good leader,very responsive and vigilant in the post. Argueably, he has been the the best goalkeeper in the continent in last few years. His contribution to his clubs over the years has been tremendous. Having broken many records as a goalkeeper. Also, he was pivotal at the last edition of Afcon Nigeria won in SA. He was also instrumental as Nigeria made it to the last sixteen in Brasil since 1998. Considering his past contribution at the club and national level and the present consistent form he deserves to be crowned the african best. The defender and goalkeeper have won the world best in the past. Without sentiment, he is in no doubt the best player in the continent.

    Vincent Enyeama was the best in the past 11months. 21 club clean sheets, good world cup performance plus 2 clean sheets, best African player in French league 2014,BBC Nominee…Toure only have 11 goals plus 9 last year, a world cup flop.

    Vincent Enyeama has made Africa proud, in for Nigeria as sub captain in 2010 and won the CAF Cup, He keep clean shit for almost 11 games outside African continent, he is calm, serious, committed and focus he deserve African player of the year, at least let goalkeeper in the continent make a name, note without goalkeeper no striker.

  • Nigerian international & Lile of france FC goalkeeper, is no doubt the best African player at the moment if sentiment is out of the selection process. I wish he is finally crowned after a very long time of great performance on the field of play.
    Great guy Vincent Enyeama, good luck

    Vincent Enyeama should be the best African player. The best goalkeeper in the AFCON, best African goalkeeper in the world cup, best African player in the france league, one of best 10 goalkeeper in the world, very consistent in his job both in the club and country. Minus sentiment he is the best African player of the year. I wish him luck

  • Without doubt,I will give it to Enyiama Vincent,there is no African player that is better than Vincent in the season under consideration,Yaya has average club performance,poor world cup performance while Vincent was only short of breaking all time championat consecutive league clean sheet with lile,he was the league player of the month twice last season,the best african player in the french league,a no easy feat for a goal keeper,fantastic world cup performance with two clean sheet,was in the french team of the season,in my opinion,one of the best five goal keeper in the world and by miles the best in the continent.

    Vincent deserve the award.He is a very good guy both inside the post and outside.very committed both to club and country.With all qualities,he deserve African best

  • Emmanuel Opaleye 7 years ago

    Vincent Enyeama should be crowned the CAF player because of his outstanding displays for club and country especially at the World Cup. Although Yaya Toure did well for City, he was a flop at the World Cup.
