The
Sunshine Stars pair of Tunde Adeniji and Kennedy Boboye have become the latest
Glo Premier League actors to be named winners of the prestigious monthly award
organised by the League Bloggers Awards (LBA) this season.
Adeniji
bagged the LBA Player for May while Boboye is the best manager for the same
month under review for performances in the Nigerian top flight.
Sunshine
Stars striker, Adeniji, had to fend off four other players to be named LBA
Player for May. Others in the running for the player’s award were Jonathan
Zikiye of Dolphins, Oghenekaro Etebo of Warri Wolves, Chisom Chikatara of Abia
Warriors and Kano Pillars striker, Adamu Hassan.
But
the number was whittled down to two players, and Adeniji was left to battle
Dolphins left-back, Zikiye for the LBA gong. The Sunshine Stars man got the nod
ahead of Zikiye after scoring three goals out of the seven netted by his team
in May, meaning he accounted for 43 per cent of their league goals in May.
He
also put in inspired performances at Heartland where they won 3-0 and he scored
twice including an individual goal to beat Zikiye, who scored twice in May
including a stunner at FC Taraba.
For
the manager’s award, Boboye was always clear favourite to pick the prize after
Sunshine Stars finished the month under review in style without losing a game
and amassing 10 points out of the 12 available.
Boboye
also guided Sunshine Stars to impressive results at two difficult grounds.
Sunshine Stars won 3-0 at Heartland and drew 1-1 at Nasarawa United.
Kano
Pillars manager, Okey Emordi, came close to challenging Boboye but fell short
as his team managed to notch up nine points owing to 0-1 losses at Kwara United
and at 3SC. Mitko Dobrev of FC Ifeanyiubah, Paul Aigbogun of Warri Wolves and
Abdu Maikaba were the other managers nominated for the manager’s gong.
The
LBA will present the awards of player and manager for the month of May to
Adeniji and Boboye respectively later this month.
