The duo have been named best performers for the month of April following their separate achievements in the top-flight

Berekum Chelsea striker Stephen Sarfo and Wafa coach Klaavs Rasmussen have been named Ghana Premier League Player of the Month and Coach of the Month respectively for April.

The duo have been outstanding for their sides in the premier league, and their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, with their latest recognition.

Sarfo scored four goals in five matches, and provided two assists and won Man of the Match thrice within this period to push the Brong Ahafo-based club to a top chase. He shrugged off competitions from Wafa wonder-kid Daniel Lomotey and Hearts of Oak midfielder Winful Cobbinah. Sarfo is only two goals shy of leading topscorer Nicholas Gyan, who has netted eight times for Ebusua Dwarfs.

Also, Rasmussen pipped Hearts manager Frank Elliott Nuttall and Yussif Abubakar of Aduana Stars to win the coach of the month after guiding Wafa to win all their five matches in April, opening a nine-point gap at the top as a result.

The Sogakope-based side have extended their unbeaten record to seven games in the top-flight in their bid to win their first-ever major trophy.
