Despite having a good season where he helped Chelsea win the Premier League and was a key player holding the right wing-back spot as Antonio Conte’s Chelsea ran away with the title, Super Eagles star Victor Moses didn’t make the final shortlist for the African Footballer of the Year award in 2017, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in the running.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced the top three shortlists for the 2017 African Player of the Year and Moses did not make the cut.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane made the cut decided by votes from the members of the CAF Media Committee, Caf Technical & Development Committee and half of the 20-member panel of experts.
The winners will be decided by votes from the head coaches and Technical Directors of the National Associations affiliated to CAF.
The Awards Gala will take place on Thursday, 4 January 2018 in Accra, Ghana.
