Drogba: Adebayor Is Africa's Best Player

Drogba's opinion mirrors that of Eto'o: Ade was the best striker in Africa last year... Chelsea's Didier Drogba has ruled himself out of the 2008 CAF African Player of the Year Award, instead tipping Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor as a worthy winner of the prestigious individual gong. "The winner? Adebayor, who has made steady progress in the last couple of months," said Drogba, who was controversially denied the previous year's award because he did not attend the awards ceremony in Lome, Togo in February. "Last year, he was a key element for his club, Arsenal. It is a performance that deserves to be rewarded." A three-time winner of African football's top individual prize, Samuel Eto'o, has also thrown his weight behind Togo superstar Adebayor, who scored 24 goals for the Gunners last season. "Frankly, both Drogba and I have battled injuries, while Adebayor has flown the African banner very high in Europe," restated the Barcelona striker. The CAF awards ceremony will take place in Dakar, Senegal, on January 23. Adebayor leads four other nominees for the coveted African Player of the Year Award. The others are Drogba, Ghana's Michael Essien and Egyptian stars Mohamed Aboutrika and Amr Zaki. Mali's Frederic Kanoute was picked by the CAF as the continent's best player for 2007
