The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has denied media reports listing nominees for the 2010 Glo CAF Player of the Year Awards describing it as fictitious.

A statement from the Confederation of African Football culled by GNA Sports, said "CAF wishes to state clearly that the list did not emanate from our offices as there are known procedures for the listing of nominees for the awards".

It added that, "In the last five years, CAF and Globacom Limited, sponsors of the award ceremony have consistently announced the list through scheduled media events and the same procedure will be followed for the 2010 awards nominees".

The statement said "such a list if authored by CAF and Globacom will be posted on the official websites of the two organizations and this has not been the case in respect of the list making the rounds".

CAF has therefore urged the general public and the football fraternity to disregard the said list circulating in some media circles, saying it will in the days ahead use appropriate channels to unveil the lists of leading nominees.

It would be noted that 17 names have been making the rounds in the media circles as nominees for the 2010 version of the Awards Night with four Ghanaian players among the list.

The purported players includes Ghana's lead striker Asamoah Gyan, midfield engine Michael Essien, Kevin Prince-Boateng and Kwadjo Asamoah all from Ghana's Black Stars.
