Hearts of Oak youngster Daniel Afriyie Barnieh has expressed his excitement after receiving an award from Kenedy Digital Satelite for being named the Player of the Week for match week 21 of the Ghana Premier League.
The 20-year-old becomes the second player after Dennis Korsah won it in the beginning of the second round of the Ghana Premier League.
Barnieh received some accolades for his role in the victory over Ashanti Gold SC in that encounter where he grabbed a brace in the 14th and 61st minutes to secure all three points for Hearts of Oak and was subsequently awarded man of the match.
"I am grateful to Kenedy Digital Satelite for this great gesture. Things like this motivates us to do more of what we are already doing," he said after receiving the award.
Kenedy Digital Satelite has become an “autonomous body” motivating players to put in their best in every game they play.
The award was presented to Barnieh during recess in the game against Dreams FC where he had already scored.
His contribution in the game was evidence as he troubled the defense of Dreams FC who had to ensure that he was well policed in order to avoid further goals.
The Phobians recorded an emphatic 3-1 victory to go 3rd on the league table and extended their unbeaten run to three at the Accra Sports stadium.
Hearts of Oak will face Bechem United on match week 28 of the Ghana Premier League at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park on Sunday.
