Nigerian defender, Ola Aina has been named Nottingham Forest September Player of the month. SportsRation reports.
This is according to official announcement by the English Premier League outfit on Tuesday, October 3, 2023.
Aina who joined Nottingham Forest this summer polled 40% of votes cast and now succeeds compatriot Taiwo Awoniyi, who won the award in August.
Capable of playing on either flank, the versatile full-back has operated on both the left and right side of defence so far this season, producing a string of solid displays.
“It’s because of this that Aina has been voted by Forest supporters as Player of the Month for September, receiving 40% of the total vote. Thank you to everyone who voted,” Forest wrote.
Meanwhile, Aina is currently out on the sidelines with muscle injuries which caused him to miss Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Brentford in a Premier League game at the City Ground.
“Ola (Aina) is out with muscle injuries,” disclosed Forest manager Steve Cooper, who also said that a return date is unknown.
The defender will miss the Super Eagles friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Mozambique, scheduled to take place later this month, due to the injury.
