Cape Town - CAF has announced its Top 10 shortlist for the African Player Of The Year based in Africa awards.

Two of the ten names belong to Orlando Pirates players, Filipe Ovono and Kermit Erasmus respectively, which is a clear indication of the club’s dominance of the 2015 CAF confederation Cup and how well the two players have stood out in the team,

“I can hardly believe it, especially with this being my first season with Orlando Pirates,” said Ovono on the club's website.

“I have been blessed with playing for one of the best clubs in the African continent and I am aware that I would not be in this position if it was not for my team-mates.

“This is an honour for my country, my team and I for me as well."

Meanwhile, Erasmus has said that he intends to take the nomination as motivation to work even harder.
