Best African Clubs Of The Decade Named, No PSL Side In Top 10

The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) has announced the 10 best CAF clubs of the past decade, basing their decision on how many annual points each team has scored in their world ranking between 2011 and 2020.

The top three sides from the first decade of this century, namely Al Ahly, Esperance Sportive de Tunis and Etoile du Sahel, were once again on the podium for the second decade.

However, Al Ahly were dethroned by Esperance, who have won three CAF Champions League titles and three CAF Super Cups over the past 10 years.

The Egyptian giants follow in second position after lifting the CAFCL three times as well, but claimed only two CAF Super Cups during the selected period.

Meanwhile, third-placed Etoile du Sahel only won one continental trophy over the past decade, namely the CAF Confederation Cup.
