When Real Madrid face Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, three more Africans could lift the coveted trophy – Mehdi Benatia (Morocco), Mario Lemina (Gabon) and Kwadwo Asamoah (Ghana). They will all add their names to the illustrious list if Juventus beat Los Blancos.
"Since I have been here, this is the second time going to the final in five years, and for Real Madrid, they have been there so many times," Asamoah, who could become the sixth Ghanaian star to win the UCL, told Rossella Marrai-Ricco in an exclusive interview in this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1025.
"For us, we have to do more; we have to give more, because we really need it. I know they want to win it, but we are really hungrier than them.
"I think they have won enough. This is our time!"
Samuel Eto'o is Africa's most decorated player in the competition, having lifted the coveted trophy with FC Barcelona in 2006 and 2009, as well as with Inter Milan in 2010.
His former Barca teammate Seydou Keita lifted the Champions League trophy twice with the Catalan giants (2009 and 2011).
Other African legends who have won the trophy include Didier Drogba (Chelsea, 2012), Yaya Toure (Barca, 2009) and McCarthy with FC Porto in 2004.
Overall, 19 Africans have won the Champions League, with 15 of them appearing in the final, as reported by UEFA.
Michael Essien (Chelsea, 2012), McDonald Mariga (Inter, 2010), Ibrahim Tanko (Borussia Dortmund, 1997) and Geremi Njitap (Real Madrid, 2000 and 2002) are the only Africans to have collected a winner's medal despite not appearing in the final.
They did, however, appear at some point during their club's respective Champions League-winning campaign to earn their medal.
