No Moroccan is in the top 3 of the best African players of the year 2018. The African player of the year will be neither Mehdi Benatia, nor Hakim Ziyech, nor Ashraf Hakimi, nor Nordin Amrabat, nor Walid Azarou.
Just like last year, the three selected are Mohamed Salah, his teammate in Liverpool Sadio Mané and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Recall that the CAF Awards Ceremony is scheduled for January 8th and will be organized in Dakar, Senegal.
However, Moroccans have every chance of appearing in the African eleven-type that will be unveiled during this ceremony.
