Ghanaian international left-back, Abdul Baba Rahman was named Man-Of-The-Match by the fans of PAOK Thessaloniki FC in their crucial win against AEK Athens on Wednesday evening.
The former Schalke 04 man-made his seventh league appearance for the Black and Whites in their narrow 2-1 win over a tough Athens side away from home.
Rahman played a vital role in his team’s both goals and was a delight to watch throughout the match with some eye-catching and jaw-breaking performance on the night.
Due to his scintillating and frenetic display on the day, the supporters of the Black and Whites team voted the Ghanaian as the Most Valuable Player of the end-to-end and entertaining game played in Athens.
Michael Krmencik opened the scoring two minutes after the break to make it 1-0 to the visitors after a goalless first 45 minutes of action.
Fifty-one minute into the game, Stefan Schwab converted a spot kick to put the away team in a deserving 2-0 lead with over 30 minutes left on the clock to play.
Muamer Tankovic was on hand to score a consolation goal for the home team on the 92nd minute of the match to make the final score 2-1 in favour of Rahman’s PAOK who move second on the league table to occupy the Europa League qualification place.
The 26-year-old Ghanaian joined the Black and Whites in the winter transfer window from Chelsea and is gradually hitting his stride in the Greece Super Lig.
