“I feel very happy as a player for winning this award because the Ghana game is not easy,” he told

“I want to win the Best African Player in the future, that is my next target.”

The 24-year-old also added the double accolades will inspire him to do even more in the coming season no matter where he plays as transfer speculations surges on over his future with Kotoko.

“This will inspire me to do more than what I have done this season.

“I came here with the intention of winning this award and thankfully it has come to pass,” he added.
