DeRo voted TFC’s July Player of the Month

Posted on 23 August 2009 by Mahmoud Shoblaq

Toronto FC star Dwayne De Rosario has been named TFC’s Esquire Player of the Month for July. Before the kick off at BMO Field Saturday, De Rosario was presented with an Esquire watch for his performance during the month. He continued the great form that earned him the recognition by scoring the first of two goals in the win against D.C. United that day.

De Rosario’s passion for the team was seen throughout this season but was not able to achieve the votes for the award in the previous months. De Rosario was recognized for his performances after scoring a goal in the 1-1 tie against his former team Houston Dynamo and another against Columbus Crew in the 3-2 defeat. He also gathered an assist on Chad Barrett’s goal in the 3-1 win at San Jose Earthquakes.

Dwayne continued his great form from the start of the season by adding to his scoring tally and surpassing Danny Dichio’s tally for a season. DeRo played strongly in every match to do what is best within his ability to achieve a result for TFC, he beat the likes of Chad Barrett, Adrian Serioux and Pablo Vitti for the monthly award.  The rest of the players even-though they did not receive the award deserve the nomination for their individual contribution and effort in the month of July. Chad fought all criticism to continue working hard and try to perform and winning an MLS Player of the Week recognition for scoring two goals against San Jose in a 3-1 victory.   While Serioux continued solid play at the back and Vitti’s performance improved tremendously helping him score his second MLS goal for TFC.

Previous TFC Player of the Month winners included Nana Attakora for the month of June, Amado Guevara for May and rookie keeper Stefan Frei for April.

Nana voted TFC’s Player of the Month

Posted on 18 July 2009 by Mahmoud Shoblaq

After a hard fought four weeks for Toronto FC players, the month of June could have been anyone’s win in the polls. Yet young Nana Attakora’s performance stood out and ended up winning more than half of the total votes.

TFC’s monthly award is voted by the public which rewards players with an Esquire watch. In all fairness, this is an extensive victory for the young player against the likes of Dwayne De Rosario, Amado Guevara, and rookie Sam Cronin.

Nana established himself as a key player for Toronto FC’s defense. With Marvell Wynne’s absence or presence, Attakora made the defensive position his own whether playing on the right or in the centre of defense.  Attakora has also picked up a few assists this season when he was able to push up the field to assist the attack.

Nana was presented with the award prior to the start of the Houston Dynamo vs. Toronto FC game at BMO Field.
