Bernard Tekpetey was named the best foreign player in Bulgaria, taking home the top prize over the weekend.
This recognition is well-deserved, given Tekpetey’s outstanding displays over the past two seasons. He played a key role in Ludogorets’ championship win last season, scoring 10 goals. This season, he has contributed 8 goals in 17 games.
“Thank you so much for this award, I will say thank God and thanks to everybody who recognized me as one of the best as well, I say God bless each and every one. Thanks to my Sporting Director as well for bringing me to Ludogorets,” the striker said.
Tekpetey joined Ludogorets in 2020 with the goal of reviving his career. He initially joined on loan and after showcasing his potential, the club took a chance on him.
He has since repaid their faith with outstanding performances, assisting the club in winning four trophies in three years.
Despite his successes with Ludogorets, he was surprisingly not included in Ghana’s provisional World Cup roster.
The striker remains focused on helping Ludogorets win the league again this season, as they currently sit in second place, and advancing far in the Europa Conference League.
