Ostersunds FK defender Samuel Laryea Mensah shrugged off competition from Black Stars and Chicago Fire forward David Accam as well as Thomas Agyepong to win the Right to Dream Player of the Year award for 2017.
Accam made 24 Swedish Allsvenskan appearances scoring two goals and has also been instrumental for Ostersunds who are in the second round of the 2017/2018 Europa League.

The 28-year-old defender has played and excelled in all positions across the back four for OFK in the 2017 season.
