BBC has Toure as Africa’s best
Cote d’Ivoire midfielder Yaya Toure was named the BBC’s African Footballer of the Year for 2013 on Monday. It was the fifth straight year the Manchester City star made the shortlist but the first time he has taken the award. “Thank you to all the fans around the world who continue to support me and who love me a lot,” said Toure. “I’m very proud, I’m very happy, this award is amazing.” Toure, who has scored 13 goals for club and country this year, was the choice of the BBC’s global audience.
