Ex-Asante Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe has described Hearts of Oak midfielder, Salifu Ibrahim as the revelation of the 2020/21 Ghana premier league season.
Ibrahim has quickly settled down to life at Hearts of Oak after joining them in a 3-year deal from Techiman Eleven Wonders.
The 20-year-old has collected a combined seven “man-of-the-match” awards between former club, Eleven Wonders and current, Hearts of Oak.
Bekoe, who was Ghana premier league top scorer in the 2007/08 league season, believes Salifu Ibrahim has shown his qualities beyond expectations.
“Salifu Ibrahim is the revelation in the Ghana premier league.
“However, where he started from has not made us see him properly.
“But now that he has come into the limelight, we have now realized that we have a quality [player] and he is showcasing.
“I watched Fabio Gama once when he came to Ghana and I said he would be good and Gama is showing it.” Bekoe told West FM
Bekoe, who is yet to retire from football, was appointed head coach of second division side, Nsawkawman FC two months ago.
It remains to be seen if he will finally finally call time on his career.
Bekoe, 34 , has played for Liberty Professionals, Hearts of Lions, Berekum Chelsea, Sekondi Hasaacas and Asante Kotoko.
His journey abroad took him to Egypt where he joined Petrojet.
He gathered just a few games for the Black Stars of Ghana.
