CAF Awards 2023: Why I Never Voted for Victor Osimhen – Amuneke Opens Up On Choosing Salah

Former Super Eagles winger, Emmanuel Amuneke has reacted to reports that he voted for Mohamed Salah of Egypt ahead of Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen in the 2023 CAF Player of the Year Award.

According to him, he was never elected to vote in the CAF Awards.

Amuneke also claimed the viral video that led to the uproar was a Moroccan journalist asking him to choose between Salah and Achraf Hakimi.

“I was never elected to vote in the CAF Awards. A Moroccan journalist came to me and asked ‘Hakimi or Salah’.

“I said Salah because I played in Egypt and I lived in Egypt and I know some of the guys there. Osimhen was never in the conversation,” Amuneke said.

Osimhen was crowned CAF Player of the Year on Monday night, ahead of Salah and Hakimi.
