Didier Drogba emerged top in the vote cast with 92 points, followed by Samuel Eto’o Fils, who garnered 69 points with Michael Essien in third position with 43 points.
The whole process began with the CAF Media and Technical Committees short-listing five players, namely Didier Drogba, Michael Essien, Samuel Et’o Fils, Yaya Toure and Seydou Keita based on the following agreed and established criteria for the year 2009:
- The performance of the player at national and international levels
- The consistency of his performance
- His sports achievements
- His charisma and influence
- His popularity
The short-list of the five players was then sent to the National Association affiliated to CAF to allow their technical experts or coaches to vote for their preferred choice in the order from 1 to 3. Three points were awarded for first choice, two points for second choice and one point for third choice.
Forty four (44) National Associations took part in the voting process. Nine (9) National Associations did not respond.
