The Confederation of African Football (CAF) favored the trio, Mahmoud Abdel Moneim “Kahraba”, Al-Ahly winger, South African Cassius Melola, and Namibian international Peter Shaluleel, the two heart attackers of South Africa’s Mamelodi Sun Downs, so that the CAF officials chose among the three best players in the brown continent this season. .
The nomination of the trio to the CAF referendum came after their strong appearance in the current version of the African Champions League, and Kahraba’s success in playing the biggest role in the red team’s passage to the quarter-finals of the prestigious continental championship, which qualified for its golden square at the expense of Moroccan Raja Casablanca.

In addition, Cassius Melola, nicknamed Vinicius Junior of South Africa, due to the similarity of Melola’s performance with the Brazilian Junior striker and top scorer of Real Madrid, and his colleague Shaluleel had a starring role in the Champions League this season after they very ably led Mamelodi to the round of four by scoring the majority of Sun Downs’ goals in tournament.
