At the heart of the Confederation of African Football award lies the much-anticipated men’s CAF Player of the Year Award, promising an exhilarating face-off between local hero Ashraf Hakimi and the formidable Super Eagles’ striker, Victor Osimhen.
Hakimi’s narrative shines with triumph, having clinched the Ligue 1 crown with Paris Saint-Germain and contributing significantly to the historic World Cup semifinal run of the Moroccan Atlas Lions.
In stark contrast, Osimhen’s brilliance on the field, unfortunately, lacked the global platform of the 2022 World Cup due to Nigeria’s failure to qualify.
CAF’s evaluation period, spanning from November 2022 to September 2023, encompasses the World Cup, potentially tilting the scales against Osimhen’s bid for the coveted title.
Stay tuned for live updates as history unfolds, revealing the rightful heir to the men’s CAF Player of the Year crown.
