Ghana’s Inkoom named best defender in Turkey

Ghana international defender Samuel Inkoom was named as the Turkish Super League defender during week 29 played last weekend.

His performance in Antalyaspor’s 4-2 win over Galatasaray on Saturday was judged as inspiring by the league officials.

The 25-year-old player claimed the most interception during the clash to earn the player of the week recognition.

The former FC Basel and Asante Kotoko right-back has so far made 13 appearances in the league since joining from Portuguese side Boavista last January.

He is expected to make coach Avram Grant squad for the Black Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mauritius and Rwanda.
