30 Jan Yaya wins City’s December player of the month award
Yaya Toure has been chosen as Manchester City’s player of the month for December 2016.
The winner of the award is decided by the fans, who had a December shortlist comprised of David Silva, Fernando and Yaya himself.
Yaya featured in all six of the Citizens’ Premier League games in December and the 2-0 win over Watford on the 14th saw Yaya notch his 200th Premier League game for the club. He also scored the first goal in his team’s 3-0 Boxing Day victory over Hull.
The conversion against Hull was Yaya’s tenth Premier League penalty and now means that he has the best spot kick success record – 100% – in Premier League history of players with more than ten attempts to their name.
Yaya posted on Twitter to thank the fans who voted for him, saying:
“Thanks to everyone that voted. Very nice to get this award.
