The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced its five man shortlist for the 2009 African Footballer of the Year award. Drogba tops the list merely because the order is alphabetical...
Didier Drogba (Cote d'Ivoire & Chelsea)
Samuel Eto'o (Cameroon & Internazionale/Barcelona
Michael Essien (Ghana & Chelsea)
Seydou Keita (Mali & Barcelona)
Yaya Toure (Cote d'Ivoire & Barcelona)
Eto'o will be the favourite to win the title again but he might just be getting a bit tired of winning it having won it thrice already.
