Kotoko ace Abeiku Ainooson eyes Premier League Best Defender award
Kotoko defender Abeiku Ainooson wants to add the Ghana Premier League Best Defender award to the double he collected during the MTN FA Cup awards night.
He is looking to make history by becoming the first player to be named both the best defender in the League and FA Cup.
But he faces competition from his centre-back partner Kwabena Edusei and Inter Allies young defender Joseph Aidoo.
Ainooson says he is head and shoulders above his competitors.
“My dream is to win personal double after all the hard work last season. After being named the best player for the MTN FA Cup I also want to win the best defender’s award for the Premiership so I can crown my season after winning the League and FA Cup titles. It will be a memorable way to have ended the season,” he said.
Ainooson joined Kotoko from New Edubiase last season and over achieved during his debut season where he excelled at the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa.
