Hearts of Oak midfielder Winful Cobbinah has angrily responded to claims by Asante Kotoko striker Saddick Adams that he did not merit the 2017 MTN Most Valuable Player award.
Adams, one of the shortlisted players for the prestigious gong, argued he did more than his rivals.
He was joint top scorer of the competition with five goals including the hat-trick in the final at the Tamale Sports Stadium.
Cobbinah insists he was the most outstanding player for last year’s knockout competition.
“I don’t normally talk about such things because we’re colleagues but he shouldn’t compare himself to me. I deserved the accolade and the organizers gave it to me,” Cobbinah told Zylofon FM.
“He should forget about the MTN FA Cup trophy that his club won. With the performance, I was better than him and he can’t compare himself to me.
“If my performance was poor in the entire competition… I don’t think I could have earned a nomination.
“It was fair…I knew I was going to clinch the Best Player of the Year award because I helped Hearts of Oak to reach the grand finale of the competition and also won three Man of the Match.”
