Nigerian midfielder Raphael Onyedika has been named Best Young Player of the season in the Danish Superligaen. Onyedika had an amazing breakthrough season at FC Midtylland since after he took over from star man Frank Onyeka who moved to Brendford last summer. Onyedika beat players like FC Copenhagen’s Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson, his teammate Gustav Isaksen, and Brondby’s Anis Slimane to clinch the award. The 21-year-old ensured that his compatriot was not missed at all, as he churned out brilliant performances consistently for the Wolves in the defensive midfield position.
“It means a lot to me to get this award. It’s always nice with recognition, even if it’s the team’s performance that matters most to me. I am happy to have played so many matches and been a regular part of the team,” Onyedika told FC Midtylland‘s official website.
” The season has gone much better than I had dared to hope for. There must be a big thank you to the coaches and my teammates who have been good at helping me so that I have always been able to improve.
“It has been the most important thing for me, and it still is. I want to get better all the time. So I keep working hard every day for training and looking at every match to see what I can do better.”
