Wan-Bissaka Scoops ManBetX Player of the Month Award

30 August 2018

Aaron Wan-Bissaka secured 48% of a fans vote on to win the ManBetX Player of the Month award for August.

It is the 20 year old right back's second Player of the Month award for the club, having scooped the gong back in March when he initially emerged into the first team.

Wan-Bissaka provided an impressive assist for Wilfried Zaha's strike against Fulham, and defended resolutely - helping his side keep a clean sheet on the opening weekend of the season, and winning rave reviews in the process.  Despite another strong performance against Liverpool, his evening was cut short after seeing red for a late, last ditch challenge on Mohamed Salah, before leaving the Selhurst Park pitch to a standing ovation.  He returned to the side following suspension for the cup win away at Swansea, putting in another assured performance resulting in a second clean sheet of the month and progression to the next round.


Last season, Palace TV filmed this insighful piece on Aaron, with contributions from the coaches that played a part in his development. Click play on the video below to watch.
