Classy midfield maestro Dietmar Hamann has won the Thomas Cook Manchester City Player of the Month-mcfc.co.uk
for August and September.
The German star has been outstanding in the role he
makes his own with some vital displays since the season started. Micah Richards,
Richard Dunne and Kasper Schmeichel could all have been winners, but the panel
gave the award to the 34-year-old.
No great surprises with this one as Hamman has been one of the key performers of the side this season and played a vital role in the development of Michael Johnson in doing the some of the more 'dirty work' to allow Johnson more of a creative licence.
All of this far removed from last season injury hit nightmare when he never got fit or had a settled run in the side, and also a surprise given it was widely thought he would be one of the players offloaded when the new regime took over.
