It's back-to-back for Aleksandr Golovin, your October MVP!
Notably the scorer of a decisive double in the victory against Metz, the Russian midfielder was unquestionably elected player of the month for October by fans of the Principality club.

It’s two in a row! Already name September Player of the Month on the AS Monaco App, Aleksandr Golovin did it again in October, since he was once again honoured by the fans of the Principality club. Winners of two matches out of three played, the Rouge et Blanc continue to push to top the Ligue 1 standings and the Russian international playmaker is one of the main reasons.

He’s a huge player, and not just this season. Since I have been at AS Monaco, he has lifted us up, taken his responsibilities, he has done us good and we are happy to have him. Today he scored two fantastic goals for us, we congratulate him for that.

Finding the top corner against Metz

A lynchpin on the flank of the attack, whether on the left or playing behind the two strikers, the Monegasque number 17 is indeed important in the style of play developed by coach Adi Hütter. In addition to scoring with strokes of genius as he did against Metz where he was the scorer of a fantastic double.

While the Monegasques were trailing, it was he who sounded the alarm before the break with a shot curling in from 25 meters into the top corner past a helpless Alexandre Oukidja. It was his eighth goal from outside the area since his arrival at AS Monaco!

These are two incredible goals but I'm not surprised because it's not the first time he's scored like this.

Top scorer on shots from distance

That was before scoring his ninth a few minutes later with a direct free kick which hit the Metz post then ended up in the back of the net. It’s the highest total of any player in the top flight since Opta began analyzing the competition in 2006-2007. Better yet, since the start of last season, he has scored six times from outside the area, which is at least two goals more than any other player over the period, notes our statistics partner again.

A large majority opt for Golo on the AS Monaco App

It’s a real specialty of his and one that he tried to repeat again in Lille, in a match where he was elected MVP despite a tough loss. It is therefore without any doubt that “the Eagle of Kaltan” has just been named player of the month for October with 91% of the votes. He finishes well ahead of Maghnes Akliouche (4.6% of the vote), author of two good appearances off the bench against Metz and Lille. Bravo Golo! 👏
