Former Black Stars goalkeeper, Daniel  Agyei, has been voted the Best Goalkeeper at the 2017/18 Ethiopia Football Federation (EFF) Stars Award at the Intercontinental Addis.

The award ceremony, which is aimed at awarding football players who excelled in the 2017/2018 Ethiopian Premier League season, saw the former Ghanaian shot stopper emerging as the best goalkeeper.

Agyei joined Jimma Abba Jifar FC in Ethiopia from Tanzanian side Simba last year October.

The former Liberty Professionals keeper managed to keep 14 cleansheets in 20 appearances for his side and conceded only six goals, helping the Ethiopian side to clinch the league title at the end of the campaign.

Jimma Abba Jifa FC’s feat in their first-ever Ethiopian top-flight campaign means Agyei, 29 will be competing in the 2018/2019 CAF Champions League.
