“Next season will be another packed moment so we will hope to at least repeat what happened in 2017. Since we have Europa League knockout stages fixture to honour, I'm still working hard for the games early next year,” he added.

Twumasi has now bagged three awards this year at Astana. He was named the club's overall best player in November while his goal against Ordabashy was voted by supporters as the best goal of the season.
