His nomination comes on the heels of an impressive season with Celtic, where he secured victory in the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup, and Scottish League Cup.

Additionally, midfielder James Maddison won the Premier League Player of the Month for August, completing a double honour for Spurs.

The England International made a significant impact at Tottenham since his summer transfer from Leicester.

He provided two assists in his debut match against Brentford, featured in a 2-0 victory over Manchester United, and scored in a 2-0 win against Bournemouth.

His good form continued into September with a goal in a 5-2 victory against Burnley. Maddison is the first Tottenham player to claim this award since Harry Kane in March 2022.

“It’s a brilliant achievement for him in his first month as a Premier League manager.  I’m sure he’ll say it’s all about the team but he’s been brilliant with all the lads,” Maddison spoke of the awards.

In winning this accolade, Maddison outshone competitors such as Taiwo Awoniyi (Nottingham Forest), Jarod Bowen (West Ham), Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford), Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton), and Rodri (Manchester City).
