The Africans With The Most Premier League Winners Medals

By Keegan Kruger - Apr 19, 2018 07:15 PM @KeeganKruger

Manchester City's African superstar Yaya Toure has drawn level with a former Bafana Bafana ace and now has just one less Premier League winner's medal than Chelsea legend Didier Drogba after the Citizens won their fifth title on Sunday evening.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see which Africans have the most Premier League winner's medals, as per Transfermarkt.

According to Transfermarkt, former Blues stalwart Drogba leads the African contingent with four Premier League medals, and all of them were, of course, won during his time at Stamford Bridge. The 40-year-old picked up his first league title in 2005 and received his fourth in 2015, during his second stint at the club.

Toure has now racked up three winner's medals since joining the Manchester club from Spanish giants FC Barcelona in 2010. The Ivorian won the English top-flight title for the first time in 2012, with his second coming two years later under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini.

South Africa's Quinton Fortune also makes the prestigious list, having also won three league titles during his time at Manchester United. The central midfielder spent six seasons at Old Trafford and won the league with the Red Devils in 2000, 2001 and 2003.

John Obi Mikel (Chelsea), Nwankwo Kanu (Arsenal) and Kolo Toure (Arsenal, Manchester City) are other Africans who have won a Premier League winners' medal, and you can find the complete list in our gallery above.

Do you think Toure still has what it takes to land one more EPL winner's medal at his age? Have your say in the comments section below.

You know that you have to play at least 10 games to get a premier league medal... Fortune has never appeared 10times a season in the PL for United. Here's a question, does Quinton Fortune have a PL medal?

Eish! this is embarrassing only one player from SA, But we have players that were playing there for more than 5 years Pienaar, Bennie, KG, Bongani Khumalo etc not even one of them won EPL. By the way Fortune doesn't have any of the medals mentioned above since he was not a regular and he played less than 10 games a season so when he left Man U he has to leave his medals behind hahahaha
