Mohamed Elneny Named Arsenal Player Of The Month
Mohamed Elneny has been named the Arsenal Vitality Player of the Month, the club announced on Wednesday.
Elneny, 23, was in fine form for the Gunners during the month of March and has duly been rewarded for his efforts – topping the club’s online poll, beating Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil to the accolade.
His first goal for the club, a stunning strike against Barcelona at Camp Nou, was also voted as the Goal of the Month, completing a clean sweep for the Egyptian international.
The former Basel midfielder returns to club action this weekend, having helped the Pharaohs to the brink of qualifying for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with a 1-0 win over Alex Iwobi’s Nigeria in Alexandria on Tuesday.
