Bolasie Nominated For African POTY

12 October 2015

Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has been nominated for the Confederation of African Football's Player of the Year award, along with 36 other players.

The prestigious award is handed to the best African player of that year, with Manchester City star Yaya Toure having taken the prize for four consecutive years.

Bolasie has impressed over the past year for the democratic Republic of Congo, helping them to reach the semi finals of the most recent Africa Cup of Nations, where they fell to Toure's Ivory Coast - the eventual winners.

DR Congo finished the tournament in third place, their highest finish since 1998, when they also came third. Bolasie played a major part in their progress through the tournament and has been one of the African nation's real stars over the past 12 months, and is thoroughly deserving of his nomination for the award.
