Victor Moses nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017

It should not be confused with the CAF African Footballer of the Year, which announced its 30-man list of nominees a couple weeks ago , the vastly differently named BBC African Footballer of the Year announced its nominees earlier today as well.

There are only five players nominated for the BBC’s award, all five repeating their nomination from the CAF’s award, including Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses, who’s currently working his way back to full fitness after a month out with a grade III hamstring injury.
The other nominees are Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mo Salah, future Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, and one of the former players of the current Liverpool manager Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. That’s a lot of Liverpool, which does give Moses a title-winning advantage, though that’s unlikely to translate to victory in either of these awards.

The BBC’s award does have a public vote component, so you can try to stuff the ballot box over on their website . Only two Chelsea players have ever won this award, Michael Essien in 2006 and Didier Drogba in 2009.
