Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala says she’s not ‘obsessed’ about winning her fourth African women footballer of the year award.
Oshoala is in the running for her fourth crown, but will slug it out with current holder, South Africa’s Thembi Kgatlana as well as Cameroon’s Ajara Nchout.
The CAF Awards ceremony is slated for Tuesday, 7th of January and another win will see Oshoala join compatriot Perpetua Nkwocha as the only players to have won the prize four times.
“Whatever the outcome, it is fine by me, I am going for my fourth one and I think it is a very good feat,” Oshoala said.
”It is all about being consistent, which is the most important thing for me I just want to be better every year and help my team anytime I am on the pitch.”
She also spoke about the chances of the Kgatlana and Nchout:
“They are very good players, obviously doing well for their various clubs which is very interesting because for me it is about how African players have grown and how much impact they have made in the sport.
“Before, we don’t hear much about African players and I am happy that during the last world cup, a lot of African talents were discovered.”
