Fulham fullback Pantsil named Ghana Player of Year

Fulham fullback John Pantsil has been named Ghana's Player of the Year.

Pantsil has been named Ghana's Footballer of the Year by the Sports Writers Association of Ghana.

"I'm very happy to have been recognised in this manner. It's a great award and a great honour for me and my family," Pantsil told fulhamfc.com.

"There are many good Ghanaian footballers and to be adjudged the best is really an honour and I thank God for it.

"I want to dedicate this award to my parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paintsil and to all members of my family for their support.

"My parents have been solidly behind me and I couldn't have reached where I'm today without their prayers and support."
