Twitter Reactions: Nigerians To CAF Snubbing Ndidi

Oluwole Ola

Nigerians fans on Twitter were not pleased with the absence of Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi from the Best African XI of 2019 which was revealed at the CAF Awards 2019 on Tuesday, January 7 2020.

Africa’s best players of the year 2019 in each position were revealed at the CAF awards’ ceremony. The list included the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Riyad Mahrez.

It was, however, the presence of Cote d’Ivoire and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye which sent Twitter Nigeria into meltdown. Gueye is in the defensive midfield position which Nigerians believe belongs to one of their own Ndidi.

Some, however, were in support of the selection and believed that Gueye deserved it more than Ndidi. It is important to note that the Best African XI was voted by African players themselves as done in partnership with FIFPro
