Johannesburg, Dec.12 (ANI): Ivorian international Yaya Toure has been named as the BBC’s African Footballer of the Year for the second time in his glittering career.
The 32-year-old veteran midfielder, who guided his nation to the African Nations Cup in February, had earlier bagged the coveted award in 2013.
Reflecting on his achievement, Toure said that he had worked hard to be what he had become and, therefore, it meant a lot to him to be nominated seven consecutive times and win the award for a second time, Sport24 reported.
Toure also helped Manchester City finish second in the last season and are in title contention for this season. (ANI)
