Kumasi Asante Kotoko head coach Mariano Barreto maintains that Augustine Okrah is the best player in the Ghana League.
The former Smouha SC player has burst into life following the arrival of the Portuguese gaffer and has been very key to the fortunes of the Porcupine Warriors.
Barreto insisted that though Brazilian import Fabio Gama has won the hearts of many people, Okrah is the real deal as he is peerless in Ghana and amongst the best on the continent.
“Everybody is talking about Fabio Gama but one of the best players in the Ghana Premier League, his name is Augustine Okrah.”Barreto stated after Kotoko draw with Olympics on Friday
“He is not only the best in Ghana but among the best in the whole of Africa.”He added.
Okrah missed the game yesterday (Friday) through injury but he is expected to feature in the upcoming game against Medeama.
