Liverpool duo Mane and Salah headline BBC POTY shortlist

Moses Shortlisted For BBC African Footballer Of The Year Award

Reacting on the nomination, the Nigeria's Super Falcons striker and Dalian Quanjian F.C. forward, who was recently crowned Chinese Women's Super League "Best Striker of the season" for 2017 took to her tweeter to query the nomination of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane, Victor Moses and Mohamed Salah.

The rest of the nominees - Guinean Keita (RB Leipzig), Nigeria's Moses (Chelsea) and Salah of Egypt (Liverpool) - have never been on the shortlist before.

Two Liverpool players have been nominated for the BBC's African player of the year award.

Despite their Nations Cup triumph in February, no Cameroonian has made a list selected by a combination of Africa-based journalists and coaches, and BBC staff.


He, alongside the other nominees for the BBC award, is also on a 30-man shortlist for the CAF African Footballer of the Year Award.

After struggling to make an impact in his early years at Stamford Bridge, Moses has found form under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, and was a key figure at right wing-back as the Blues cruised to the Premier League title last season.

He also shone as Senegal reached their first World Cup since 2002. He's scored 12 goals for Liverpool just this season; no Liverpool player has scored more than 14 goals in one season since Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in 2013-14, and it's only November. So far the 25-year old has hit an impressive seven goals in 11 appearances.
