Narey… introduces himself
Khaled Narey came out on top in the vote for the BOX MVP for August via paokfc.gr and the PAOK FC Official App, doing the double having also picked up the award for August’s Regency Casino Best Goal.
Last season with Fortuna Dusseldorf was the best of his career. And as he stated, it was a year that filled him with self-confidence. However, he was looking for a bigger challenge and found it in Thessaloniki. The saga of his transfer lasted for about 1.5 months, but it seems that the wait was worth more than that.
Khaled Narey has assumed a leading role from the first moment he pulled on a black and white shirt. In the first two matches of the 2022-23 Super League championship, he was pivotal. Against Panetolikos he provided the assist to Brandon Thomas for the winning goal, while against Atromitos he scored in the last phase of the match to clinch the three points.
And unsurprisingly, in the poll for the BOX MVP of the month, Narey swept the public’s preferences and won the top vote with a percentage that reached 70%.
In second place was Tiago Dantas, who was excellent, putting in the kilometers and connecting the Double-headed Eagle’s play, while the podium was completed by Brandon Thomas , who in his first two games in the league scored one goal and fought endless battles with opposing defenders.
