Pellè nominated for Player of the Month

By SFC Media time Thu 07 Apr Club

Southampton's Graziano Pellè has been nominated for the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month award for March.

The Italian, who featured in all four matches for Ronald Koeman's side during the month of March, produced excellent displays in vital wins over Stoke City and Liverpool.

After a 2-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth, Pellè was at the double as Saints beat Stoke City 2-1 away from home.

The Italian's clever header and excellent curled finish sealed a big three points for Koeman's side, who moved above the Potters in the Premier League table.

Pellè was at his best again in the memorable comeback against Liverpool in the following game, as he helped Saints overturn a two-goal deficit.

After setting up Sadio Mané for the first goal, the 30 year-old curled home brilliantly to level the scores, before setting up Mané again to seal the stunning fightback.

Pellè is up against Leicester City's Wes Morgan and Riyad Mahrez, West Ham's Dimitri Payet, Swansea City's Ashley Williams and Spurs striker Harry Kane for the award.

The striker has already won the award since arriving in England, having been named as the league's top player in September 2014.

Pellè will find at at 6am BST on Friday 8th April if he has won his second Player of the Month award.
