MAGICAL MOUSSA SCOOPS AWARD
FULHAM starlet Moussa Dembele bagged the Football League Young Player of the Month award for October – and then set his sights on more honours.
Having represented France at various youth levels, the current under-20 international had a standout month in the Sky Bet Championship, scoring five goals as the Whites went unbeaten in October.
Dembele scored in a 1-1 draw with Leeds United before firing doubles in the back-to-back wins over Reading and Bristol City.
“I feel very happy to win this trophy but it is just the beginning,” said the 19year-old former Paris Saint-Germain youngster. “I need to keep going, keep doing what I am doing and keep impressing everyone.
“For a young player it is good to have a run in the first team and know that people around you believe in you. That's what happened.
“I took my chances and I’m very pleased with that. I am still young and still learning the game. It is a good trophy but hopefully there is more to come.”
WINNER: Moussa Dembele
