Akpom wins Fans’ Man of the Match award
Chuba Akpom came out on top in the paokfc.gr and PAOK FC Official App Fans’ Man of the Match vote for the second leg of the Round of 16 Greek Cup match against AEL at the Toumba.
He only needed 15 minutes to make an incredible impact. He came off the bench in the 77th minute, found the back of the net in the 82nd minute to put his team in the lead, and got a yellow card on 89 minutes. Then he scored again in the first minute of added time – an amazing goal at that, and a strike which was so good it prompted him to celebrate by taking off his short which lead to… another yellow card followed by a red. Yes, that’s Chuba Akpom!
The Englishman vindicated Razvan Lucescu’s decision to bring him on, becoming the absolute protagonist for his team in sending PAOK through to the last eight of the cup.
And in the poll for the Fans’ Man of the Match, Akpom collected 71.18% of the votes to win the individual award.
