Manchester City’s Loanee Striker Shines in April; Nominated Alongside Teammates
In a stellar display of skill and prowess, Nigerian forward Kayode Olanrewaju has earned a coveted nomination for Shakhtar Donetsk’s Player of the Month award for April, as reported by Completesportsnigeria.com.
The esteemed recognition places Kayode in contention with three of his formidable teammates—Goncalves dos Santos, Taison Barcelos, and Marlos Romero. The nomination follows Kayode’s recent standout performance where he clinched the title of Man of the Match, securing a crucial 1-0 league victory against Mariupol last Friday with his lone goal.
Currently on loan from English Premier League giants Manchester City, Kayode has made a significant impact since joining Shakhtar, netting two goals in just four appearances. His stellar contributions have played a pivotal role in Shakhtar’s commanding lead at the summit of the Ukrainian league, boasting 69 points, a three-point advantage over Dynamo Kiev with only three games remaining in the campaign.
As Shakhtar eyes silverware in the upcoming Ukraine Cup final against Dynamo Kiev on May 9 at the Dnipro Arena, Kayode remains a key figure in their pursuit of success. The striker will look to further solidify his position as an integral part of the team when Shakhtar faces Zorya, currently occupying the fourth position in the league standings, in their next encounter on Saturday.
With anticipation building, football enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the outcome of the Player of the Month award, as Kayode Olanrewaju continues to make waves in Ukrainian football.
