Kouyate named African player of the month


KouyatewesthamCheikhou Kouyate has been named February’s African Player of the Month in the Premier League. A statement by the organisers, New African Soccer, announced the award with awards Director, Tunde Adelakun saying “It was a really tough decision. February was a short month but with lots of activity; and every player in the shortlist played a part in making it a big one for Africans”.

“But Kouyate stood out; putting in a solid performance in the heart of the West Ham midfield all month, and scoring some important goals as well. He even effectively played in a centre back role against Manchester United, which made him a good all-rounder in the month. I think he just about edged it, and many of our followers were in agreement”.
