    I think Lookman will be CAF player of year 2024 , cause no African player shone in European pitches as Lookman shone as an African player led his club to win UEFA Europa Leauge , he has scored hat-ric for his club Atalanta BC for their frist time since from their foundation.

    He led his club to win Europa league, qualified his club for champions League, qualified Nigeria to final of the Afcon, He wins Nigerian footballer of the year bcos of his one man performance at the Afcon. He deserves it no one comes close.

  • Exactly what I was thinking yesterday. I think he is better position to win since no Africa player come close to him. What a performance from him yesterday.
