Antoine Semenyo: Ghanaian Forward Scoops Top Award at AFC Bournemouth
- Antoine Semenyo has been named Bournemouth's Player of the Month
- The Ghanaian forward beat competition from three other teammates
- Semenyo enjoyed an outstanding November as the Cherries won two games
Black Stars forward, Antoine Semenyo has won the November Player of the Month award at AFC Bournemouth following an impressive run of form.
The Ghana international was in fine form for the Cherries as they picked six out of nine points in the month.
Semenyo starred as Bournemouth defeated Newcastle United and Sheffield United in November, serving an assist in the victory over the Blades.
The 24-year-old beat competition from Marcus Tarvenier, Dominic Solanke and Ryan Christie to win the coveted prize. Semenyo pulled 38.6% of the votes to emerge the winner of the Player of the Month award, as reported by the club's official website.
The strong forward was on target as Bournemouth shared the spoils with Aston Villa in a thrilling encounter at the Vitality Park last weekend.
"I think we play well as a team, we train hard together and I feel the manager's tactics after coming together now, I mean we are slowly building, going through this tough period, and hopefully get some more wins. I mean we were unlucky with the draw today but it's a point. It is better than nothing," said Semenyo after the game, as quoted by Ghana Soccernet.
Semenyo joined AFC Bournemouth in January 2023 and has since been an integral member of the team, scoring three Premier League goals this season.
Bournemouth are on a run of four games without defeat, winning three and draining one.
