You might also be wondering why Africans are nowhere to be found when it comes to Balon d'Or because the highest we go is being shortlisted among the nominees but still won't eventually win it

This season, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane have been shortlisted as the potential winner of this coming Balon d'Or of which none of them will ever win it

George Weah of Liberia is the only African player that has broken the jinx. He's the first African player to win the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 1995, and ever since then no one had even gotten that close to winning it

Africans players are not as bad as some of us may think just that there are a lot of thing holding African players back from performing exceedingly in the game of football

What's your take on this?
