Ademola Lookman emerges as contender for CAF Player of the Year

Posted : 10 May 2024

Ademola Lookman, a forward for the Super Eagles, has emerged as a strong candidate to succeed Victor Osimhen as the CAF Player of the Year, especially following Atalanta's recent triumph over Olympique Marseille.

Osimhen's exceptional performance during Napoli's 2022-23 season, winning the Italian Serie A title and scoring numerous goals, earned him the prestigious Player of the Year accolade.

On the other hand, Lookman's significant contributions to Atalanta, particularly in their journey to the final of the 2023-24 UEFA Europa League in Dublin, have positioned him as a potential successor to Osimhen for the CAF Player of the Year award.

Lookman stands out as a frontrunner for the CAF Player of the Year award, boasting an impressive track record in the 2023-24 season.

His achievements include securing the Africa Cup of Nations silver medal, with three goals and one assist during the tournament, and earning an AFCON Man of the Match award.

Additionally, Lookman played a crucial role in Atalanta's advancement to the finals of both the Copa Italia and the Europa League.

Currently, Lookman has amassed an impressive tally of 12 goals and eight assists for Atalanta this season, solidifying his status as a standout player worthy of the esteemed award.

During the AFCON tournament held in Cote d'Ivoire, Lookman netted three goals and provided an assist, establishing himself as the leading scorer for the Super Eagles under the leadership of coach Jose Peseiro.

Expressing his satisfaction with his performance, Lookman emphasized his joy in contributing to the team's success, highlighting the collective effort of the squad.

In Atalanta's recent victory over Olympique Marseille, Lookman showcased his talent by opening the scoring with a dazzling display, skillfully maneuvering past several defenders before finding the back of the net.

This sets the stage for an intriguing final showdown in Dublin on May 22, 2023, where Lookman will face off against his compatriots Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella, both integral players for Bayer Leverkusen, who secured victory over AS Roma.
