Super Eagles midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo has expressed joy after he was named South West Stoke City Player of the Year in his debut season for the Championship side.
The 23-year-old who joined the Potters from Portuguese outfit CD Feirense last summer was beaten to the club’s best player award by goalkeeper Jack Butland, but took home SW Stokies’ top gong.
The excited combative playmaker took to Twitter to revel in his ecstasy and thanked the Potter’s fans for their support.
“It’s a thing of joy winning the SW Stoke City player of the year and I just want to use the opportunity to appreciate the fans for their support, though we didn’t achieve our main target for the season,” Etebo tweeted.
On Sunday, Etebo was in action as Stoke played out a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in the season finale, with the Potters ending in a disappointing 16th position and set for a second straight season in the Championship.
