Red-hot midfielder of Hearts of Oak, Ibrahim Salifu has clinched his seventh NASCO man-of-the-match award of the ongoing Ghana Premier League following his solitary strike against Bechem United.
The former Techiman Eleven Wonders left-footed skimmer was in beast mode as he helped the Phobians arrest their poor away run with a 1-0 win over the Hunters at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park on Wednesday afternoon.
The Phobian acquisition affectionately called Di Maria, was the star of the show as the capital-based heavyweights bounced back to winning ways over the weekend against King Faisal and was adjudged the Most Valuable Player at the end of the game before adding yet another gong to his collection.
His mouthwatering displays has seen some social media users compare him to Kotoko’s Fabio Gama.
But per the numbers available, Hearts of Oak’s Ibrahim Salifu is head and shoulders ahead of Fabio Gama with the former notching two goals, assisting six and sweeping home seven NASCO man-of-the-match awards while Gama has two goals, an assist and one Most Valuable Player award to show.
Probably, head coach of the senior men’s national team – Black Stars – Charles Kwabla Akonnor would be bitting his fingernails after ignoring Di Maria in his most recent squad ahead of the international window.
