Hearts of Oak wingback Raddy Ovouka has been named into the seven man shortlist vying for the 2020 Congo Brazzaville footballer of the year award.
His stellar performance in the year under review for the Phobians caught the good eyes of the Congolese Football Federation there by leading to his nomination.
He was an integral member for the Phobians in the 2019/20 season before the league was halted by Covid-19 earning him his maiden call up into the Red Devils of Congo Brazzaville, their senior national team.
The 21 year old in the ongoing season has featured in all their six games including a sensational man of the match display against Dreams FC in matchweek four.
Raddy Ovouka’s strong defensive abilities blended with his good serging runs stole the attention of Congo giants TP Mazembe who have already had two of their bids rejected by Hearts of Oak.
The other nominees for this prestigious accolade include;
Silvere Ganvoula Mboussy (VFL Bochum)
Mavis Tchibota (Ludogorets Razgrad)
Dimitri Bissiki (AC Leopards)
Gaius Makouta (Beroe Stara Zagora)
Prince Vinny Ibara (Neftçi PFk)
Junior Makiesse (Unattached)
