Head of communications of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Obed Acheampong has described the 2016 PLB awards ceremony as classic robbery following Amos Frimpong’s unsuccessful bid to win the best defender of the season.
Amos Frimpong, Kotoko’s captain played 26 matches and scored 8 goals as a defender and helped the club to finish on the 5th with 46 points.
At the Banquet Hall on Friday evening, Hearts of Oak defender was adjudged the best defender of the season. Many have questioned the criteria on how the Inusah won the award ahead of Amos Frimpong.
Inusah was introduced in the second half of the 2015/16 season but showed up impressive display winning nine man of the match awards but Obed hugely disagree with the officials of the Premier League Board.
“It’s an absolute robbery for Amos Frimpong not to win this award. How can Inusah Musah who played 13 matches out of the 30 games win the award ahead of Frimpong and Abdul Bashiru?
“Well honestly speaking it’s a classic robbery. I do not understand it. It doesn’t add up as to why Musah won the award.
“Yes, awards are full of controversies but sometimes you can manage the situation to prevent these kinds of controversies by being fair. We need further explanations from the organizers why Musah won the award.”
