Trika basks in African glory
Al Ahly and Egypt skipper Mohammed Abu Trika has expressed his happiness after he was crowned the best African-based Footballer of the Year 2012 by the Confederation of African Football.
CAF announced that the 34 years old player is the best player based in Africa at their gala ceremony in the Ghanaian capital Accra.
“ I am happy with the prize but I don’t love the individual awards , I like the team prizes more” Abu Trika told supersport.com.
” I want to thank my team, we all did well this year as Al Ahly won the prize of the best team in Africa” he added
” This year was very tough for me and for my teammates but we tried to do our best. I now dedicate my award to our departed fans from the Port Said disaster. WE will now focus on getting to Brazil and under Coach Bradley Im sure we will be there” the captain concluded.
