Yaya Toure named 2013 BBC African Footballer of the Year

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has won the 2013 BBC African Footballer of the Year award.

The Ivory Coast player beat Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Victor Moses, John Mikel Obi and Jonathan Pitroipa to this year's crown.

“I think I’ve been nominated for five years in a row and finally winning the award is amazing. It’s a fantastic achievement because I don’t think there has ever been as many quality African players in top-level international football as there are now: Aubameyang, Pitroipa, Mikel, Moses, Salomon Kalou, Gervinho… we have fantastic players. I also think African football is improving and that means a lot to us. And as an African, I’m very happy.” – Yaya Toure.

Congratulations Yaya Toure...
