Former Ghana International Yusif Chibsah, has praised Asante Kotoko midfielder Justice Blay for his outstanding performances in this season’s Ghana Premier League which is currently on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Chibsah was speaking about his best midfielders in the Ghana Premier League after matchday 15 where he mentioned notable names such as Justice Blay (Asante Kotoko), Christopher Nettey (Hearts of Oak), Frederick Ansah Botchwey (Hearts of Oak), Benjamin Bernard Boateng (Elmina Sharks) and Gladson Awako (Great Olympics).

According to Chibsah, Blay’s style of play is similar to his style during his active days as a footballer.

“There have been impressive performances from some of the midfielders in the game like Justice Blay, Kwame Keyeke, Benjamin Bernard, Eric Kwakwa, Modasiru, Emmanuel Nettey, Frederick Ansah Botchway, Elvis Opoku and others, he told Happy FM.

“I can single out Justice Blay who plays just like me. He combines both defensive and attacking duties as a midfielder for Asante Kotoko. Looking at all the players I have mentioned I think he fits that criteria.”

“He has a very good rate and the way he plays I think is similar to how I played during the active days as a footballer”, he added.
