Being a professional footballer is not easy and it never was. The pressure of performing week in week out can take toll on the best in the business and result in dry spells of poor form, which ultimately results in having a barren spell and getting stuck in a rut. 

Few footballers overcome this situation by working hard, while others try their luck in a different scenario by making a move in the transfer window. Here, we look at seven players who have resurrected their career this season. 

David Abagna Sandan - RTU
There was never any doubt about the midfielder's talent and ability, the only question mark was on his consistency. This season around he's answered those questions with style. After having a forgetful spell with Ashantigold, David Abagna Sandan has certainly revived his career with RTU this season.
He has scored three goals in three appearances thus far.
Michelle Sarpong - Elmina Sharks
Joining Elmina Sharks on loan, Sarpong was always held in high praise by the Hearts faithful, but lost his way, place, and trust of new manager Samuel Boadu after the departure of Kosta Papic.
This season though Sarpong has been a beast with a goal, and one man-of-the-match performance for Nii  Odartey Lamptey's led side. 
Did Hearts give up on Michelle Sarpong a bit too early? Only time will tell but as of now the answer seems to be YES
Ibrahim Osman- King Faisal Babies
The enigmatic forward had a nightmare stint at Kotoko after joining them from Asokwa Deportivo. After his move to the Porcupine Warriors, things only went downhill for Osman as he failed to live up to the expectations and became a laughing stock of sorts.
Since his loan move to King Faisal, Osman is finally living up to the expectations and doing justice to his talent. He has scored 2 goals in 2 games this season and has put in one man of the match performance.
Frank Boateng - King Faisal Babies
After being deemed as a flop even before he took the field for King Faisal, Boateng has come a long way by answering each and every critic with style. The dynamic goal custodian previously had a tumultuous stint with  Ashantigold and nothing great was expected from him when he arrived in Kumasi.
Since his arrival, the goalkeeper has been nothing short of excellent and was very impressive in King Faisal's historic 3-1 win over Aduana Stars at the NAB park.
Eric Ofori Antwi - Legon Cities
Time to put some credit back behind the name Eric Ofori Antwi. Sure, his form dipped considerably in the past campaign, but it was always going to be impossible to maintain the ridiculous standards he had set over the past years prior to that slip.
The Royals had seen enough over the past years to fork out a good money for his services, and the former Medeama goalkeeper finally began to earn the praise he deserved. Commanding and dominant between the sticks, there is no other goalkeeper whose mere presence is enough to leave a striker quaking in his boots.
Augustine Okrah - Bechem United
The former Kotoko man has been in great form for Bechem United this season, and has been their second most important player after  Kofi Agbesimah.
With his pace, energy and ability to link up well,  Okrah has been very influential for the Bechem club and is key to their early season form, as he has helped the team punch above their weight. 
Richard Akrofi - King Faisal Babies
King Faisal Babes are in a period of immense transition and Richard Akrofi had to take up a lot of responsibility being the skipper and one of the senior players in the squad.
The central defender has played a crucial role in the club's return to form, helping ease defensive concerns.
Akrofi plays with great composure, forming a strong partnership with Pius Baffour Awuah, and looks sharp, making crucial interceptions and putting in last-ditch tackles.
