Fornaroli named January's PFA A-League Player of the Month

Bruno Fornaroli makes it back-to-back honours after the City forward was today named as Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) A-League Player of the Month for January.

Having been the recipient of the award for December Fornaroli becomes the first player to have received the honour on two occasions after edging out Perth Glory’s Diego Castro.

The Uruguayan found the back of the net in four of the five matches in January and continued his stellar first season in Australia. Leading the league’s Golden Boot, Bruno continued his fine form, completing the incredible record of scoring against every A-League side after only 16 rounds in City's 3-1 win over Wellington. 

Fornaroli said he was proud to receive his second player of the month award.

“It is an honour to have become the first player to win the PFA A-League Player of the Month Award twice,” said Fornaroli.

“Recognition from your fellow players means a lot and it is very special. I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, my teammates, fans and everyone at the club for their support and I hope we can enjoy more success this season.” 

PFA President Matt McKay said the City forward was deserving of once again receiving the recognition of the players.

“Throughout the history of the A-League we have been fortunate to have had some truly outstanding forwards plying their trade in the competition and Bruno has shown that he is up there with the best,” said McKay.

“His goals tally speaks for itself but his overall play and quality has been equally as impressive.”
