Yaya Toure Named CAF Player Of The Year For The 4th Time

Ivory Coast and Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure has clinched the 2014 CAF African Player of the Year title for the 4th time in a row.

The former Barcelona midfielder, who has now equaled Samuel Eto’o record of 4 CAF Player of the Year awards, was adjudged winner at the glittering awards ceremony just minutes ago.

The votes were cast across the continent by coaches of national teams affiliated with the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
