The Confederation of African Football -CAF- has announced 37 names of players, who have been shortlisted for the 2015 African Footballer of the year.
However, no Zambian has been shortlisted for Africa’s prestigious Award.Additionally, no player from Southern Africa has been shortlisted for the award with the closest being Robert Kidiaba from DRC.
Last year’s winner, Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, is one of four players shortlisted while Algeria boasts of five players on the list.
And Soccer Analyst, Desmond Mugawa says it is sad that Zambian players have continued to miss from the list of the shortlisted players.
Mugawa said this is because Zambian players do not play in competitive leagues.
