Amr Warda named Best Foreign Player in Greek Super League
Egypt international Amr Warda has been named the Best Foreign Player in the Greek Super League for the 2017/2018 season.
The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Atromitos from PAOK, making 28 appearances for them across all competitions, in which he scored 11 goals and assisted seven.
Warda’s superb performances helped the club finish fourth in the league and saw him win the Best Foreign Player award in the SuperLeague at the Greek football PSAP awards gala on Tuesday.
The Greek football PSAP awards are given annually by the Greek Union of Professional Football Players (PSAP) to the best players, coaches, and refeeres in the Greek football leagues.
The Egyptian becomes the first African and Arab player to take home the award and has joined a list which includes a number of great players, including Rivaldo, Krzysztof Warzycha, Djibril Cissé, Kevin Mirallas, and Marcus Berg.
Warda returned to PAOK last summer, but after struggling for game time, he has rejoined Atromitos last January on loan until the end of the season.
The former Al Ahly winger has played 27 games for PAOK and Atromitos this season, scoring only once while assisting twice.
Meanwhile, AEK’s Lazaros Christodoulopoulos has been named as the Best Greek player, while Tasos Douvikas of Asteras Tripolis and Atromitos’ Andreas Gianniotis claimed the Best Young Player and Best Goalkeeper awards respectively.
