Victor Moses is not by a long mile favorite for the CAF African Footballer of the Year award, EX- Eagles winger Tijani Babangida has told brila.net
Moses has put on display a purple patch and enjoyed a rich vein of form this term for Chelsea FC.
His reinvention with Chelsea this season has without a doubt put him up there as one of Africa‘s best players in Europe Babangida said, however it’s a long shot to consider him favorite for the prized Africa‘s best honors.
After several loan spells to EPL clubs including Liverpool and West Ham, the 26-year-old may very well be in the running for the top individual award for African players at next year’s event.
However, the topic of another Nigerian becoming king on the continent since 1999 is dividing opinions, but Babangida has no doubts about the subject.
The former Ajax Amsterdam player said as Nigeria‘s most consistent player, Moses is unarguably the best from the Country but falls just short of pitching him for the CAF gong.
With the performances of Gabon‘s Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Senegal’s Sadio Mané for Dortmund and Liverpool respectively, Moses will have a tough group to contend with.
Algeria‘s Riyad Mahrez is the current recipient of the award.
