New fan favourite Chidera Ejuke wins third consecutive CSKA award

The accolades continue to come in for the 23-year-old winger, who has also boosted his reputation among Nigerian fans following his impressive performance on Sunday 

Chidera Ejuke has picked up yet another award again after he was voted CSKA Moscow’s player of the month for September.

Ejuke received 55% of the fans vote on the club’s website to pick up the award. It’s the third consecutive player of the month award for the 23-year-old.

The former Vålerenga winger has started the season brilliantly for CKSA, scoring two times and providing two assists in the ten league games in the Russian top-flight.

It’s not only at club level Ejuke has impressed. The ex-Heerenveen star won new fans in the last international break for his impressive performance for the Super Eagles.

Ejuke started the first leg of the shock home loss to the Central African Republic, but it was his impressive cameo that caught many fans eyes.

The winger, known for his dribbling skills, moved past the Wild Beasts defenders like a hot knife passing through butter.

His brilliant solo run in the latter stages of the game earned him comparison with former Super Eagles captain Austin Jay-Jay Okocha.

And at the age of 23, his best years are still ahead of him. Ejuke will return to club action this weekend when CSKA take on Ural on Sunday afternoon.
