Omeruo Backs Lookman for 2024 CAF Player of the Year

Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo has thrown his support behind compatriot Ademola Lookman for the 2024 CAF Player of the Year award.

Omeruo’s endorsement follows Lookman’s stellar performance in Atalanta’s 3-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Europa League final, where Lookman netted all three goals. This achievement made Lookman the first African to score a hat-trick in the final of a major European competition.

Lookman has also been pivotal in Nigeria’s recent successes, contributing three goals in seven matches to help the Super Eagles secure a second-place finish at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Reacting to Lookman’s remarkable performance, Omeruo took to social media, stating: “@CAF_Online your Africa Player of the Year..@ALookman_ top player.”

With his outstanding form for both club and country, Lookman is emerging as a strong contender for the prestigious African football accolade.
