The Fire Club’s frontman has been adjudged the current best performer in the top-flight after his blistering start to the campaign
Aduana Stars striker Yahaya ‘Tormentor’ Mohammed has been named the Ghana Premier League Player of the Month of January after an incredible start to the season.
The 32-year-old bagged six goals in six games and won nine points for his side to help them amass a total of 13 as table toppers. He also won two man of the match awards.
Although, Victorien Adebayor scored five goals and won two man of the match awards, Yahaya’s impact as Aduana topped the league log didn’t go unnoticed.
“Aduana Stars hitman Yahaya Mohammed has won the Premier League Nasco Player of the Month for January.
“The Premier League top scorer beat off competition from Inter Allies’ Victorien Adje Adebayor, Berekum Chelsea’s Zacharia Fuseini, Medeama’s Prince Opoku Agyemang and Asante Kotoko’s Justice Blay,” a Ghana FA statement read.
“Mohammed was in sensational form in the six games under review, weeks 1 to 6, which were played in December and January respectively.
“He scored 6 times in 6 matches, including a hat trick. He also won the Nasco Man of the Match award twice.
“For his price, Yahaya Mohammed will receive a NASCO television and a personalised trophy from award sponsor Nasco,” the statement added.
Yahaya also stands the chance of winning the diadem again in February as he has scored two goals already in two games against Medeama and Ebusua Dwarfs respectively.
