Yaya Toure has been short-listed for two prestigious football awards. He is in contention for both the BBC African Footballer of the Year and the Confederation of African Football’s Player of the Year Award, which he won last year. Yaya said:
I am very honoured to have been nominated for both of these awards. It is nice to be named among some of the best players in the Premier League and beyond. It is also nice to be recognised for the hard work me and all of the team put in last season when we won the league.
