Cyprien deservedly named Aiglon of the Month

After picking up 58% of the vote, Wylan Cyprien is your Crédit Agricole Aiglon of the Month for August! With three goals and two assists to his name, the Nice midfielder has had an incredible start to the season. 

He is unquestionably the man of the start of this season. The player who has been involved in every battle, every match, and every goal (7). At the start of each move, the final ball, or the one finishing it, Wylan Cyprien has been putting in performances that can be seen through his stats. Figures that don’t express his full impact, but yet still provide a good idea. The former Lens man is flourishing in the deep midfield role which suits him to a T. A role that allows him to dictate play from deep (85% pass completion on average), where he is constantly the target for the first pass, and where his impact equally extends to his defensive work (9 interceptions in four matches, the third best record in L1). 

With three penalties out of three converted from the spot since the start of the season - the first time this has been done since Alexandre Lacazette in October-November 2016 - Wylan, who has worn the captain’s armbabnd in Dante’s absence, has also picked up two assists.  

Behind the midfielder, Youcef Atal sits in second place with 27% of the vote. Returning injured from the ACN, the full-back missed the start of the season, but marked a tremendous return against OM (1-2), as if he hadn’t been away. Ignatius Ganago completes the podium, with 8% of the vote. Goal scorer at Nîmes, the Cameroonian youth international also won a penalty in the derby, and continues to show his development week after week. 

Trophy to be presented against Dijon

Wylan Cyprien will receive his Aiglon of the Month trophy at the Allianz Riviera, ahead of the match against Dijon (kick-off on Saturday 21 September at 9pm), at the end of the warm-up. 

A supporter that took part in the draw will be chosen to present the award at the side of the pitch. The supporter will also received a shirt signed by the player, as well as a Visa card, with 80€ credited to it thanks to Crédit Agricole Provence Côte d'Azur, the sponsor of Les Aiglons’ Player of the Month Award.
