Confederation of African Football (CAF) has released the list of names of players for Player of the Year award and it includes Ghanaian football stars-Asamoah Gyan and Kwadwo Asamoah. The two Black Star players who have been instrumental this year in the team’s numerous success join 23 players from other African countries to compete for this year’s Best African Player. With players like Didier Drogba, John Mikel Obi, Seydou Keita and Yaya Toure in the list, it will surely be a difficult one for the two Ghanaians—-but nothing is impossible.
The winner will be announced at the Glo-CAF Awards Gala scheduled for Thursday, January 9, 2014 in Lagos, Nigeria. The long list includes
Ahmed Musa Nigeria
John Mikel Obi
Luís Carlos Almada Soares – (Platini)
Ryan Isaac Mendes da Graça
Yao Kouassi Gervais ‘Gervinho’
