Thuram shines in January
Khéphren Thuram, who scored twice in what was a brilliant January, is your Crédit Agricole Aiglon of the month. With 44% of the votes, the midfielder is ahead of Justin Kluivert (17%) and Marcin Bulka (12%).
A substitute at Brest and then a starter for the next three games, Khéphren Thuram got through the first month of the year with an impressive consistency in his performances. The number 19's incessant activity in linking defence and attack, his sharp passes and even his goals, which he has made a speciality of, have all played a part in Le Gym's fine month. A month marked by three league victories and a historic qualification at the Parc des Princes.

His goals against Nantes at the end of an impressive run and at Metz as a fox in the box put Les Aiglons on the road to victory and highlighted all the qualities he possesses as a player. Always willing to work hard for the team, his performances earned him the Aiglon Crédit Agricole award for the match against Nantes and put him on the podium in Metz and Paris, enabling OGC Nice to consolidate its position in second place behind PSG. The consistency and impact of the U-21 international have not gone unnoticed and have earned him the Crédit Agricole Aiglon of the Month award from the fans.
KLUIVERT CONSISTENT, BULKA REWARDED
In second place, another Aiglon was praised for his consistency. Justin Kluivert, who was named Crédit Agricole Aiglon of the Month in December, was once again decisive and in great form in January. In Brest, the Dutchman set up Kasper Dolberg for the opening goal after drawing out the Breton defence.
Marcin Bulka takes third place. The goalkeeper, who put in a complete performance and made two decisive saves in the penalty shoot-out at the Parc des Princes, helped Le Gym progress in the Coupe de France and to play a quarter-final against OM.
TROPHY PRESENTATION BEFORE CLERMONT
Khéphren Thuram will receive his trophy before the kick-off of Nice - Clermont this Sunday (3pm). The Gym midfielder will be presented with his award by a fan chosen at random from among the voters.
