Asante Kotoko’s attacker, Obed Owusu has been voted as the Overall WORST Player of the Year in Happy FM’s Golden Bin Awards after scoring only a goal for the Porcupine Warriors in the 2016 Ghana Premier League.
Obed, who wields a wealth of experience in the Ghana Premier League after stints with All Blacks, Berekum Chelsea before joining Kotoko.
He was expected to rise above himself and lead the Porcupine Warriors when they experienced their goal drought in the course of the season.
He beat off competition from Hearts of Oak duo Samudeen Ibrahim and Owusu Bempah as well as Aduana Stars shot-stopper Stephen Adams.
Happy FM’s Golden Bin Awards (Bindone d’Oro) is meant to motivate players with exceptional qualities and abilities, who failed to live up to expectation in the year under review, to lift up their game and put in a better performance the following season.
The final shortlist of four was done through votes cast by fans with inputs from some coaches and journalists. However, voting for the winner was solely from fans.
There will be subsequent awards for the Worst CEO, Worst Match Commissioner and Worst Referee.
