#CAFAwards2019: Morocco’s Hakimi Beats Osimhen, Chukwueze To Emerge African Youth Player Of The Year
Morocco and Borussia Dortmund defender, Achraf Hakimi, has been crowned as the African Youth Player Of The Year.
The 21-year-old has been in scintillating form for the Signal Iduna Park outfit since teaming up with the side and last season he played a significant role as BVB finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga.
The Dortmund star beat Nigerian duo of Victor Osimhen (Lille) and Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal) to emerge the winner on Tuesday at the 2019 CAF Awards ceremony in Egypt.
The on-loan Real Madrid man was part of the Atlas Lions’ squad at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt that reached the Round of 16 of the tournament.
