Sydney FC's Adrian Mierzejewski has been announced as the Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) Hyundai A-League Player of the Month for December.
Mierzejewski is enjoying a stellar debut season in the Hyundai A-League, accentuated by an exceptional December in which the table topping Sky Blues secured maximum points from their five matches.
Throughout December, Mierzejewski regularly mesmerised opposition defences and found the back of the net five times in as many games to go with three assists, highlighted by his two goals and man of the match performance in the Sydney Derby in Round 10.
Voted on by the PFA’s A-League based members, the 31 year old said he was honoured to receive recognition from his peers.
“I am very happy. I would like to thank my teammates and the PFA for nominating and choosing me as their player of the month for December,” said Mierzejewski.
“We have a great squad at Sydney FC and if it wasn’t for the players around me and their support I would not have the chance to receive this honour.
“I believe we have a very good chance of a few more of our squad at Sydney FC being nominated in the months ahead.”
PFA President Alex Wilkinson said Mierzejewski was a more than deserved winner for December.
“Adrian has shown to be one of the signings of the season so far,” said Wilkinson.
“From his performances you can see he is really enjoying his football at the moment and he certainly enjoyed a excellent festive season on the field."
