Mohammed Kudus and Thomas Partey named in CAF Best XI for 2023


Mo Kudus, who plays his trade for West Ham in the English Premier League, scored 18 goals in all competitions for his former Dutch club, Ajax last season and also netted twice for Ghana at the 2022 World Cup.


His impressive form earned him a move to the Premier League, with West Ham paying over 40 million euros to secure his services.


Thomas Partey, who plays for Arsenal the Gunners, was instrumental in the Gunners’ strong performances last season, helping them finish second in the Premier League table.


He was named in the CAF Best XI along with Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana, who lost to Morocco’s Yassine Bounou, as he was named CAF’s best goalkeeper on the night.
