Despite not winning a trophy last season, Kromah believes that his personal contribution at IE and Breweries puts him in a better position to be voted as the best player in the country.

Sidiki scored a total of 15 goals last season while playing for both Breweries and IE in the Liberian top flight.

The attacker managed six goals with Breweries and scored 9 goals at IE including 2 goals for IE in the relation playoff which was not counted for the top scorer away.

Speaking to FrontPageAfrica after the LFA announced the final three candidates for the MVP award Kromah appreciated sports journalists, club captains, and coaches for nominating him to reach the last three.

“The voters will be true to themselves; they will vote on statistics because the stats favor me. Now I am in the final three and I hope to win and is confident of that. I want to thank my fans and teammates and the press because they show it during the preliminary process, I want to encourage them that the process just started and we need to end It,” Sidiki said.

The former Breweries and Fassell FC attacker said his former team Breweries technical staff and playing body played key role in his performance last season and appreciate them for helping him come top in the national league individual award.

According to the awards committee, the winner of the MVP will walk away with a Jeep and cash prize, something Sidiki is hoping he will take home on December 3, 2022.

The crux of the matter: top scorer of two teams; Monrovia Club Breweries and Invincible Eleven (IE), something unprecedented in Liberian football history.

Sidiki Kromah’s move from the Breweries mid-season cost them a disappointing season as they were relegated. They never had a lethal finisher in the squad of the deadly Sidiki Kromah in the second phase. 

Breweries loss was the yellow boys’ gain as IE blushes were saved by Sidiki’s talismanic finishing and the yellow boys were saved from relegation.

His goals were vital as they won points for his team.
