Kercem Ajax’ Felipe Augusto de Oliveira is the BOV GFA Player of the Month for January.
The GFA said that Brazilian forward Felipe, joined Kercem at the start of the season and as well as scoring in 7 games from 11, he also helps boost his team’s defence and is one of the hardest workers in midfield in the BOV Gozo League.
A welcome 3 points for Kercem through their 3-1 win over SK Victoria Wanderers, helped them in their bid to avoid relegation. Felipe scored 2 goals in the match, with one of the goals receiving Brazil TV stations support for nomination for the FIFA Puskas award.
Spotting the opposing goalkeeper out of position, Felipe hit a lob from beyond the centre line sealing their first win of the season, the GFA said.
Felipe commented that he “strongly believes that Kercem has the potential to avoid relegation this season and keep their position in Gozo’s top football division.”
Horace Laudi, Chief Officer Personal Banking at Bank of Valletta presented the player with the trophy.
Felipe chose the Arka Foundation to benefit from the donation associated with his award.
