Nigerian and Bordeaux striker Joshua Erowoli Orisunmihare Oluwaseun Maja has won the Player of the Month for October in France.

The 23-year-old goal poacher was nominated for this prestigious Ligue 2 honour earlier this month.

The striker fended off competition from Julien Maggiotti and Gautier Lloris to win the October Player of the Month award for French Ligue 2.

It was Josh Maja’s first nomination and first award after being voted by the public and his peer to win.
