Chelsea’s Victor Moses has been named the English Premier League African Player of the Month of November by organisers New African Soccer, AfricanFootball.com reports.
The Super Eagles winger edged Kenya’s Victor Wanyama of Tottenham and fellow Nigerian Victor Anichebe of Sunderland to win a second straight award in two consecutive months.
Moses has flourished in a new right wing-back role under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and has been instrumental in his team being top of the Premier League.
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,” Tunde Adelakun, CEO of New African Soccer noted.
