Yaya Toure wins African Footballer of the Year 2012

Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure has been voted African Player of the Year for the second time running. The 29 year old Man City player, who also won it last year, was crowned this evening at a glamorous Glo-CAF Awards Gala that held at the Banquet Hall, State House in Accra, Ghana. Well deserved?

Btw d 3 nominated,maybe he did BUT my choice has always been Mr Captain Extra-ordinaire, Christopher Katongo of Zambia

I just dont agree wt dis. Yaya's a great player, no doubt, but to win the Player of d year is impossible; he shd av bn 2nd best. what are the criteria if we may ask? Yaya played the nations cup, scored 1 or 2 goals while pivoting the midfield; Didi scored 3 or 4, while spearheading the attack- asides captaining the side and shouldering most, if not all, the responsibilities. Ok Yaya won the premiership wt man city, but didi nearly singlehandedly won the UEFA champs League wt/for Chelsea. D entire thn is like a farce to me. Congrats tho Yaya (nothn against him), but I just dont agree. Not a Chelsea fan, but come on- Drogba deserved this.

I believe Drogba has been robbed for he deserved the award, Chris. Katongo second, and Yaya Toure, third.

Drogba won the FA cup and Champions League for Chelsea. He scored the winning goal against Liverpool and the winning penalty against Bayern Munich. This award was rigged.

My thots exactly....inanycase,if wishes were horses,JayJay shuda won a couple of dis african best playa ish.its a flawed system sha.

Cayode said...

I think Yaya deserves it. But did they forget what Drogba did?

Unknown said...

I don tire 4 mikel oo.he no dey gree work hard.anyway na bcos mikel neva score any goal sine he join chelsea sha

Gobari Crown Franklin said...

This is madness. I call it total madness because how can you give Yaya Toure African player ahead of the drog himself Drogba.
I'm sure those who gave this award are not watching football. Didn't they watch the champions league? Football in Africa is rubbish. 1st they nominated Alex Song, now giving an awards to Toure ahead of Drogba. MADNESS

Well deserved.

walkingtall007 said...

yaya is a GENERAL when it come to holding that central position.... And he has also been consistent in for a long time now..... Scoring one million goals doesnt mean u must win player of the year...if it is on that criteria then i think henry should av won world best before now and cannavaro shouldnt av won it @ all

Well deserved award, Yaya was absolutely superb through out last season, in my own opinion I believe he truly deserved it cos Drogba was having injury most of last season. Chelsea without Drogba is equal an average team while Man city without Yaya Toure equals a very mediocre team.
