Castro voted PFA Player of the Month


The scintillating form of Perth Glory’s Spanish marquee Diego Castro has been honoured with Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) naming him February’s Hyundai A-League Player of the Month.

After being edged out by Melbourne City’s Bruno Fornaroli last month, Castro has played a starring role in Glory’s resurgence and the team’s three wins in four matches during February

He was also on target in the team’s 6-3 annihilation over Brisbane Roar.

Castro said he is extremely proud to have been voted by his peers as the A-league Player of the Month.

“All players value the recognition of their fellow professionals and this award means a lot to me,” said Castro.

“I would like to thank my teammates, the fans and everyone who voted for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Hyundai A-League and I hope we can achieve something special this season with the club.”

PFA President Matt McKay said Castro’s performances had lit up the League.

“Diego has consistently been one of the league’s standout performers and February was no different,” said McKay.

“He has already made an enormous contribution to the A-League and I have little doubt he will continue to do so throughout the remainder of the campaign.”

Glory travels to New Zealand this weekend to face Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.
