Chelsea winger Victor Moses has won the men’s 2018 Aiteo-Nigerian Football Federation player of the year award, while Asisat Oshola won the women’s 2018 Aiteo-Nigerian Football Federation player of the year award at a ceremony held on Monday.

Oshoala, meanwhile, stood out yet again among the women, famously netting the winner in Dalian Quanjian’ triumph in the Chinese Women League FA Cup.
Other winners are Coach of the Year (Men) Kenndey Bobboye Coach of the year (Women) Ann Chiejine Young player of the year (Men) Ikoumem Udoh Young player of the year (Women) Rasheedat Ajibade.
