Baggies defender voted by fans as top man in December
ZOOPLA’S Player of the Month award for December has been won by new fans’ favourite Goran Popov.
The Macedonia international earned back-to-back Man of the Match awards for his performances against West Ham and Norwich - with Romelu Lukaku tucking home his inch-perfect cross to secure a 2-1 victory over the Canaries in Albion’s final game before Christmas.
And his display against the Hammers one week earlier also proved a hit with the fans, who honoured him with new chant, ‘Popov the Albion man’ to the tune of ‘Popeye the sailor man’.
Thanks to Zoopla, Albion supporter Gary Rickard, from Marston Green, presented the left-back with his prize at the club’s training ground yesterday after voting for the on-loan defender in the club’s official Facebook poll (WestBromwichAlbionofficial).
For your chance to present the January award, all you need to do is vote for which Albion player you think has been the stand-out performer when we open the voting on Facebook next month.
All supporters who nominate the winning player will stand a chance of being chosen at random to congratulate the star man in person – and have their picture taken with and signed by the player.
