Moussa Djenepo’s brilliant match winning solo effort against Sheffield United for Southampton in September, was voted as the Budweiser Goal of the month of September in the English Premier League.

He showed strength, stamina, trickery and cool finishing when he shrugged off Sheffield midfield Oliver Norwood with skill and power, then ran past two other Sheffield defenders before leaving Sheffield’s goalkeeper Dean Henderson rooted on his line with a smart finish at Bramall Lane.

It was his second goal of the season after his superb goal against Brighton and Hove Albion in August.

Djenepo’s goal was chosen by a panel of experts combined with a public vote to claim the award.

“It makes me feel happy, it gives me great pleasure to score a beautiful goal like that, it was fantastic, and it brought us three points,” the Malian midfielder said in a statement of acknowledgment after receiving the award.

“The most important thing was that we got the three points, so I am very happy.”

The midfielder joint Southampton in the summer from Belgian side Standard Liege.

The player thrives where he feels loved and attributes his early success to the love he has be shown at the South Coast of England.

“I was loved down there in Standard, and I feel loved here at Southampton,” Djenepo added.

“That gives me strength to work hard, especially the fans. They were passionate at Standard and here it is the same thing, so it is the same family feel here.

“I have won an individual trophy, and now my dream is to win a collective trophy with Southampton.”

The 21-year-old midfielder has won 13 caps for Mali at senior level with one goal to his name.
