Yaya Toure wins Glo-CAF African Player of the Year 2014

Cote d'Ivoire's Yaya Toure beat Nigeria's Vincent Enyeama and Gabon's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to win the 2014 African Player of the Year. The fourth time he will win it - 4 years in a roll. Congrats to him but I think Enyeama should have won.

Injustice. Shoulda been Vincent. But how else to show that Glo is a Nigerian country other than unfair elections/ judgements/decisions.

Shirley Shalokpe said...

nkiacha atemnkeng said...

Enyeama should have won on what basis? because he's your compatriot? Lol. Linda, it was clearly, clearly Yaya Toure. His perfomance this year was better than the others. He scored fabulous goals,splashed in wicked free kicks, gave uncountable assists which helped his team to win the [remier league. I admit his world cup outing wasn't great (gervinho even played better than him in the ivorian squad in brasil) but general perfomance, pants down Yaya

Osuagwu Onyinye said...

Yeah enyeama shud have. CAF should stop judging with EPL cos Africa wise our Vincent did better than yaya.

Nobody expected Vincent to win! For where?! If he had the remotest chance to win, they'd cheat him outta it.

Please stick to blogging and watching whatever that interests you. Enyeama should have won it over Yaya on what basis? DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH YAYA TOURE DOES FOR MANCITY? Smh...where Toure is competing and recognised, Enyeama is just warming up. Abi because you watched World Cup, you think that's all there is to football.

Congrats 2 him! Dr is always anoda chance,Enyeama shld try harder next tym.

kush baba said...

Yaya is a great player no doubt but considering their individual achievement for 2014 which was what this award was supposed to be based on Enyeama did better than Yaya both at national team sides and club sides...... Enyeama won the best Africa player in French league and later won the overall best player in the French league for 2014....... well maybe other things that we don't know are also put into consideration but sentiment apart I think Enyeama should have won the award not Yaya!

Our keeper won the African nations cup, he won the best keeper of the tournament, he won the best keeper of the French ligue, goal gave him best player in Nigeria, now apart from the EPL what has yaya done?!

Naijarian said...

Linda, you're right. Enyeama should have won. He nearly beat the record for the longest period without conceding a goal in France. It is just that keepers are not rated, otherwise his record is as good as almost beating the highest goal scorer record of strikers. He was even voted the best keeper in France for the second successive season..

Subomi said...

I knew it. That's enough though. haba 4! he is a good player no doubt
