Boakye-Yiadom wins prestigious Serbian Super Liga Best Player award

Striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has been officially recognised and awarded Serbia's topmost players' award, the Novosti as the best player in the Serbian Super Liga for 2017.

He was voted for the award by the captains of the 16 clubs in the top-flight.

This is in addition to the best player award he received earlier, courtesy journalists, for the same league.

He was also voted Red Star Belgrade's best player for the year and recognised also as the club's most prolific foreign-born player of all-time.

These are culminations of a remarkable 2017 for the Black Stars striker.

He scored 39 goals in 44 appearances for Red Star and some of them took the club from the first qualifying round to the Round of 32 in the Europa League.

The striker, 25, is expected in Nanjing this weekend for the start of his duties as a Jiangsu Suning player.

He joined the Inter Milan family club in a deal worth a staggering €4m in annual wages.
