Former Chelsea defender suggests Lookman as Osimhen's CAF successor

Posted : 23 May 2024

Former Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has advocated for Ademola Lookman to receive the African Player of the Year award from CAF.

Lookman's outstanding performance during Atalanta's 3-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Europa League final has sparked the suggestion. He played a pivotal role, scoring two goals in the first half and adding another in the second, securing Atalanta's first European title in over six decades.

With his hattrick, Lookman etched his name in history as the first player ever to achieve this feat in a Europa League final.

Omeruo's social media post endorsing Lookman for the prestigious award has stirred up some debate within football circles, especially considering Victor Osimhen's win last year, which ended Nigeria's prolonged drought in the category. However, Osimhen's performance with Napoli this season has been less impressive.

Omeruo's suggestion highlights Lookman's exceptional contributions to Atalanta's success and underscores his potential candidacy for the coveted award.

Lookman's remarkable performance in the Europa League final and his overall impact throughout the season have earned him recognition as a worthy contender for the African Player of the Year award.

As the debate unfolds, Lookman's supporters point to his consistency and game-changing abilities as factors that make him a deserving candidate for the prestigious accolade.
