Black Stars midfielder Thomas Partey has been named the Footballer of the Year for the second successive year at the Ghana Football Awards on Sunday evening.
The well-attended event was staged at the Marriott Hotel in Accra.
The 25-year-old beat off stiff competition from Black Queens forward Abdulai Mukarama and Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan to retain the prestigious award.
He was also named the Foreign-based Footballer of the Year which recognised the exploits of Ghanaian footballers plying their trade abroad.
Partey deservedly picked up the two prizes after excelling with Atletico Madrid and the Black Stars, registering some sensational goals with his trademark long-rangers in the period under review.
