Tekpetey joined Ludogorets in 2020 with the aim of reviving his career. He initially joined on loan and after demonstrating his potential, the club took a chance on him.
“Thank you very much for this award, I thank God and thank you to everyone who recognized me as the best person, I say God bless everyone. Thanks also to my sporting director for bringing me to Ludogorets,” said the striker.
Bernard Tekpete terminated his contract with Fortuna Dusseldorf after their relegation from the Bundesliga in 2019.
He was expected to return to his parent club Schalke 04, but as he was not in their plans, they allowed him to join PFC Ludogorets in the Bulgarian topflight league.
Bernard Tekpetey is aiming to get more game time at PFC Ludogorets to regain his goalscoring form and confidence.
Tekpetey made just 10 appearances in all competitions for Fortuna Dusseldorf in his debut season.
