Etihad Player of the Month January: Ivan Franjic


The votes are in and we have a winner! Congratulations to Ivan Franjic who is the Etihad Airways Player of the Month for January.

An impressive month from the Socceroo full-back saw Franjic edge out Tim Cahill and Bruce Kamau for the award in a month where he returned to his Asian Cup form.

Franjic’s month was highlighted with a goal-of-the-season contender against Western Sydney Wanderers as his half volley curled past Vedran Janjetovic into the top corner in Round 14.

Notching up 220 passes with an 86% passing accuracy as well as winning over 75% of his duels throughout the month, the Socceroo has come into form at the right time of the season.

The Etihad Player of the Month will be back for February. Stay tuned to melbournecityfc.com.au for the nominees.
