African Club Ratings: Champions Wydad Upstaged

Wydad Athletic Club trail in the latest African football club rankings.

Being kings of African club football, Wydad Athletic Club are leading on all fronts except where it concerns overall ratings.

This perhaps might be a wake-up call moment for the Moroccan club’s board of directors after the latest Football Database release had them slipping off the pedal to sit at eighth place.

The Emperors shocked Al Ahly to claim the Total CAF Champions League for a second time after their first win in 1992.

The good news is that fierce rivals Raja Casablanca are nowhere near matching their feat as they occupy the 17th place. While this could be viewed as a setback, there is a consolation to derive in being one of Africa’s top-ten best performing sides in football and financially.

Al Ahly of Egypt seat at the summit with 1,650 points while Tunisia’s Esperance follow closely in the second position with 1,613 points. The two DR Congo giants Mazembe and AS Vita including Etoile Du Sahel complete the top-five.

There were places for Sudan’s duo Al-Merreikh and Hilal Omdurman at 6th and 7th respectively while Wydad is eighth, CS Sfaxien (Tunisia) at 9th and Dynamos of Zimbabwe at 10th.

Mamelodi Sundowns found themselves along with Cameroon’s Coton Sport at 11th and 12th.

Football Database did not bother to explain what method was used to determine the figures of Wydad, valued in excess of 14 million euros in the transfer market.
