He took to social media to revel in his triumph, appreciating the fans for their support.

“It’s a thing of joy winning the SW Stoke City player of the year and I just want to use the opportunity to appreciate the fans for their support, though we didn’t achieve our main target for the season,” Etebo wrote on Instagram.

“But we still need to keep up the positivity that’s why we all love the game!!! Once again respect from my heart to you guys.”

On the international scene, he is set to help Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations billed to kickoff on June 21.
