Swansea City forward Andre Ayew was on Saturday morning named as one of
five players shortlisted for the prestigious 2015 BBC African Footballer
of the Year award and this year it seems he is the overwhelming
favorite for the award.
Algeria’s Yacine Brahimi, the 2014 winner, is on the shortlist along
with Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ghanaian Andre Ayew, Senegal’s
Sadio Mane and Yaya Toure of Ivory Coast.
Andre Ayew won the award in 2011 with Yaya Toure also winning it in 2013.
The eventual winner will be announced on December 11 2015.
