He scored three goals and provided eight assists and won eight man-of-the-match awards.
Salifu beat off competition from the team mate Benjamin Efutu, the leagues top scorer Diawise Taylor, WAFA’s Augustine Boakye, and Gladson Awako now a phobian to win award.
Coach Boadu receives a shopping voucher worth 7000 cedis, while Salifu walks home with a shopping voucher worth 5000cedis. They will also get to spend their weekend at Alisa Hotel with all expenses paid for.
