YACOUBA BEATS AMED TOURÉ AND MANDELA TO SABOT D'OR AWARD

Kumasi Asante Kotoko cult hero, Songné Yacouba has been recently honoured in his home country. The Bobo Dioulasso born has been recognised for his exploits with the Ghanaian based club in his short stint.


At the Sabot D'or awards night, the ex- Stade Malien attacker was declared as the best Burkinabe footballer playing outside Burkina Faso but on the African Continent.


The award was won by Amed Touré, a former Asante Kotoko forward, last year when he won the Golden Boot award whilst with Asec Mimosas.

The award night is set out to award excelling Burkinabe footballers. The forward currently in Ghana waiting to return to action after sustaining an injury against Asec Mimosas in the Otumfuo Cup missed the awards ceremony.
