CAF Awards: Nigeria Superstar Oshoala wins women player of the year 2022: Other winners

 Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala and Senegal’s star Sadio Mane have emerged as winners of the CAF Player of the Year Women’s and Men’s categories.

While Thursday’s feat is only a second-time triumph for Mane, it is a record fifth accolade for Oshoala, who despite struggling with injuries all season long, was still able to prove her mettle as Africa’s best.

Oshoala was brilliant for Barcelona last season helping her side to a flawless league triumph.

Despite missing out on weeks of action due to injury, Oshoala emerged as the top scorer in the Spanish female league as she clinched the Golden boot after registering 24 goals in Liga Femeni.

For this latest award, Oshoala saw off the stiff opposition from Cameroon’s Ajara Nchout Njoya and Zambia’s Grace Chanda to become the first-ever woman to win this Player of the Year accolade five times.

Before now, Oshoala was tied on four with her compatriot and veteran of the women’s game Perpertua Nwokocha.

Oshoala made an early exit from the ongoing Women’s Africa Cup of Nations after suffering yet another injury in the opening group game against South Africa’s Bayana Bayana.

In the men’s category, Mane retained the CAF Player of the Year Men’s Award after beating his compatriot Edouard Mendy and former Liverpool teammate, Mohammed Salah, to the continent’s most prestigious individual accolade.

Other Winners

In some of the other categories, Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies FC who won the inaugural edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League were voted as the winner in the Club of the Year Women’s category,

Moroccan outfit, Wydad AC, claimed the Club of the Year Award for the second successive time in Men’s category.

For the Men’s Coach of the Year, Senegal’s Aliou Cisse, who guided the Teranga Lions to their first ever AFCON title, was predictably voted ahead of former Egypt coach Carlos Quieroz and Wydad’s Walid Regragui.

For the Coach of the Year in the Women’s category, Desiree Ellis with her giant strides with South Africa’s Bayana Bayana was voted winner once more.
