These are rosy times indeed for Nigeria’s Victor Moses. Shortly after he was voted the PFA fans Player of the Month for November, the Chelsea winger has been named the English Premier League African Player of the Month of November, AfricanFootball.com
Moses, 27, was voted for the gong ahead of Kenya’s Victor Wanyama of Tottenham and fellow Nigerian Victor Anichebe of Sunderland whom he beat to the PFA award
a week ago.
The Super Eagles wingman has flourished in a new right wing-back role under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and has been instrumental in the Blues’ surge to the top of the Premier League log after eight straight wins.
He put in another superb display as Conte’s men shocked Manchester City in a top of the table clash at the Etihad on Saturday, one week after he got the winner in the London derby victory over Spurs.
Organisers of the award, New African Soccer, in a statement congratulated the Nigeria winger but also mentioned the competitiveness of the November award, especially in the votes.
‘Victor Wanyama, also a one-time winner of the award, put up a strong showing and this was rightly justified, considering his role in Tottenham Hotspur’s early surge which made them the last to be beaten in the League. His move from Southampton was a positive one,” the statement read.
