Emmanuel Nettey grateful to Hearts fans after winning Player of The Month award

Hearts of Oak's midfield sensation, Emmanuel Nettey has applauded the supporters of Hearts of Oak for voting him as the club's best player in January though he played fewer games during the turn of the year.

Nettey beat off competition from fellow teammates, Joseph Esso and Raddy Ovouka, to become the first player to scoop the prestigious award for the 2019/20 season.

The former Inter Allies player took to his Facebook to thank the fans for showing him that love and added he will work hard since these honors come with a huge responsibility.

"Thank you to the fans who voted me for the player of the month. It’s very important for me and I think it will motivate me to work much harder for the club. When we’re out there on the field it’s the fans who drive us on and they’re always there to try and give us that bit extra when we play both home or away even when we might be tired and today wasn't an exemption"

"I think they are really important for us and I hope they can continue getting behind us like they are doing currently and hopefully we the playing body would put in 100% to help achieve the club's objectives for the season."

Nettey is expected to receive a cash prize of GHC2000 after the chairman of the National Chapters Committee (NCC) of Hearts of Oak, Elvis Hesse Hermann this week disclosed that player of the month for the club will be awarded the said amount.
