  • Mohamed Elyounoussi: Premiership Player of the Month for October

    Mohamed Elyounoussi: Premiership Player of the Month for October

    By: Newsroom Staff on 20 Nov, 2019 17:31

  • MOHAMED Elyounoussi has been named the Ladbrokes Premiership Player of the Month for October. The 25-year-old Norwegian attacker has been in impressive form since joining the club on a season-long loan from Southampton.

    He kicked off October with his first goal for the Hoops in the 2-0 home win over CFR Cluj in the Europa League, and he followed that up with four Premiership goals during the month.

    He hit a double in an emphatic 6-0 victory over Ross County at Paradise, while he was also on target in the 4-0 win against Aberdeen at Pittodrie and the 2-0 home win over St Mirren.

    And his good form extended into November as he scored a double in the League Cup semi-final win over Hibernian at Hampden, and helped the Hoops record a historic victory in Italy against Lazio, a result which booked European football after Christmas for Neil Lennon’s side.

    Speaking to Celtic TV after receiving his Player of the Month Award, the Celtic player said: “It’s a good achievement but as everyone knows, football’s a team sport so I have to thank my team-mates.

    “I came up here to Celtic to create chances, score goals and help win games for the team and with the manager’s trust in me, I think I’ve done that.

    “The quality of the training here is very good, and the competition between the players in great. We’ve got a really good squad and that’s shown in terms of where we are at the moment – we’re top of the league, both in Scotland and also in the Europa League – and my team-mates are making me a better player, which is why I’ve won this award.”

    And while it’s been his domestic form which has resulted in the award, perhaps not surprisingly, Elyounoussi’s favourite goal is his first for the Hoops.

    “You always think about the first goal you score for a club, and that would probably be my favourite goal so far, but hopefully there’s plenty more to come,” he said.

    “I would say all of the players have been good to me since I’ve joined Celtic. I came almost at the same time at Moritz Bauer, so it’s only natural that I get along with him. We’re actually neighbours now.

    “Fraser Forster, I knew from before at Southampton, and he’s been driving me in to Lennoxtown, while he and Kris Ajer have been telling me things about the club.”
