Solomon Asante is USL Best Player for August

Phoenix Rising captain, Solomon Asante, was the toast of the USL for the month of August.

The award was handed to him on Thursday and it was his second personal accolade of the season after he picked it up in June this year.

Asante scored for six times for Rising in the month under review and created three for the team as they went on a 6-match winning run and he was thankful for the support of his team mates who helped him excel during the month.

“It’s an honor being recognized for my input, but this great achievement wouldn’t have been possible without my coach and the entire playing body.

Therefore, I dedicate this award to them and also thank them for making me a better player.”

The former TP Mazembe player got 39 percent of the fan vote, 65 percent of the media vote and 60 percent of the USL Technical vote.

So far, Asante has scored 21 league goals this season and 14 assists to his name.
