The Year 2017 is fast turning out to be the year of reward for Super Eagles and Chelsea forward Victor Moses, as he has gotten another nomination, this time being the 2017 BBC player of the year.
Moses who is also on the shortlist of CAF player of the year award, was nominated in a special live launch broadcast in London on Saturday night alongside Gabonese and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Guinea and RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, and the duo of Liverpool forwards, Sadio Mane of Senegal and Egypt’s Mo Salah.
The Former Wigan forward will be a serious contender for the award that is scheduled to come up on December 11, after he helped Chelsea to clinch a second EPL title in 3 years.
He also played a pivotal role for Nigeria’s Super Eagles, in qualifying for the Russia 2018 world cup netting 3 goals in the process.
If Moses gets to win the award, he will be the first Nigerian to clinch it since former Eagles captain Austin Jay Jay Okocha won it in 2004.
