Emmanuel Adebayor: Sadio Mane and Mo Salah never deserves African POTY


Former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane should not have won the Africa POTY Award in 2017, 18 and 19 respectively

Liverpool have saw two of their African stars winning the prestigious Africa Player of  the Year prize in three consecutive years dating from 2017.

Salah won the prize in 2017 and 2018, while Mane collected it in 2019.

Via Kingfut, Adebayor said: “How is Sadio Mane winning CAF Best Player Of The Year when he's not African based, Lionel Messi has never won any continental individual trophy in his continent.

"In my whole footballing years, I've seen European players who were amazing and they played in America they never made the nominees. But in Africa, an African who is based in Europe and then he wins African awards. How is that?

"In Brazil, Neymar can't win Brazilian player of the season but can win Brazilian player of the year, so when they include all the countries in that continent and make Neymar the best player what about the players who are based in that continent.

"CAF stands for Confederation Of African Football. How Salah and Sadio win it is way out of my worst imagination. That award belongs to African based players."
