Asante Kotoko winger Emmanuel Gyamfi believes he deserved to be named Man-of-the-Match in the Porcupine Warriors’ 1-1 draw with rivals Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday.
Kwame Kizito’s second half opener was cancelled out by Sadick Adams’ penalty as Kotoko were held in the their first game in three weeks after an accident on July 12 `involving their team bus claimed the life of the club’s assistant equipment officer.
The likes of Winful Cobbinah and Fatawu Mohammed of Hearts of Oak put in exceptional performances, but Gyamfi, who was peripheral at at times, was named Man of the Match – a decision that raised a few eyebrows.
But the former Wa All Stars flying winger said his contribution in the game was deserving of the accolade.
“Intelligent people play football. I made good runs and my touches were excellent so I deserved it,” Gyamfi said at a post-match press conference.
Gyamfi has been arguably Asante Kotoko’s top performer this season contributing 4 assists and 1 goal this campaign.
