Ghana captain Isaac Twum will not take self-glory despite winning the best player at the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.
The midfielder was named the most valuable player of the tournament after helping the Black Stars B clinch the title on home soil.
Twum played all seven matches for the Black Stars B team, the 19-year-old could however not last the entire minutes in Ghana’s final group match against Nigeria after sustaining an injury after just 6 minutes into the game.
The Inter-Allies deputy captain after a spectacular display was adjudged the most outstanding player in the competition.
His award came at the back of Ghana’s triumphant victory over Nigeria in the finals on Sunday.
“I will like to celebrate this with my teammates who have been excellent, I did not do this alone,” he told the media.
“It was a collective effort, team work and guidance from the Coaches.
“I don’t think this would have been possible if not for the help of my teammates and so I will like to dedicate this to all the players who played a role to ensure we won the title.”
The former Ghana u17 and Hearts of Lions midfielder’s accolade did not come as a surprise after his brilliant performance at Club level where he has scored three goals for Inter-Allies in this season’s Ghana Premier League.
