Yacine Brahimi got named as the BBC African Footballer of the Year 2014! The 24-year-old midfielder becomes the first Algerian to win the award, which is decided by football fans.
Porto winger Brahimi told BBC Sport:
“It’s a big honour for me to receive this wonderful trophy. I owe it to my country, Algeria, and to all the people who voted for me. It’s also a trophy for the whole of Africa, because it rewards an African player. So I am really very happy. This trophy is going to give me more strength, more desire to work, to get better, to learn so that I can keep having great performances.”
After a record number of votes were submitted from fans in 207 Fifa-registered countries, Brahimi came out on top ahead of Nigerian Vincent Enyeama who came second, Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ivorian pair Gervinho and Yaya Toure.
