Asante Kotoko pair, Prosper Ogum Narteh and Franck Mbella Etouga, have been named as the Ghana Premier League Coach of the Month and Player of the Month following their heroics in the month of January.

The Porcupine Warriors were involved in five games in the top-flight during the first month of the year, winning four of those and drawing the other.

Narteh’s side overcame challenges from Aduana Stars, AshantiGold, Medeama Sporting Club and Great Olympics while Berekum Chelsea were the only side to take a point from the Kumasi-based.

In that run also, the gaffer saw his team concede just one goal, coming in the 3-1 win over AshGold, keeping four sheets during that period and scoring eight goals.

For Etouga, his blistering performance saw him get the nomination alongside AshGold’s, Yaw Annor and Karela United’s Umar Bashiru.

The Cameroonian youngster won two Man of the Match awards while finding the back of the net five times – including the hat-trick against the Obuasi-based outfit, which represented 62.5% of the club’s league goals in January.

The awards should be a major boost for the team as they prepare to play Hearts of Oak in the 2022 edition of the President’s Cup.
