Bernard Dong Bortey confessed that he has been struggling to understand why Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew among other players have failed to win the CAF African best player award.
After Abedi Pele won the award in Africa’s football prestigious award in 1991, 1992 and 1993, no Ghanaian footballer have been able to win the award.
After several nominations Ayew, Essien and Gyan received, none of them have won the gold award.
And according to the Hearts of Oak legend, with the skills Gyan, Atsu and Kwadwo Asamoah possesses, he is struggling to understand why they failed to win the African best player award.
“Only Abedi Pele [Ayew] has been Caf African best player in Ghana,” he said.
“I’ve been worried about why Asamoah [Gyan], Kwadwo Asamoah, [Andre] Dede Ayew, [Christian] Atsu, as skillful as they are, have not been able to win it,” he concluded.
