Partey fails to make Caf 10-man shortlist for Footballer of the Year award

Ghana and Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been excluded from the Confederation of African Football’s ten-man shortlist for 2018 African Player of the Year award.

The final phase will involve votes from CAF Media Experts, Legends, Coaches of the quarter-finalists of the Caf Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup, and Coaches & Captains of the 54 Member Associations.
