Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic said:
"I am very happy for Sone getting this award as he has worked hard for the team over the past months, so it is a good reward for him.
"We have seen an improvement to our results of late, so it is also a reflection on the whole team, and I want that hard work to continue so that many of my players will be eligible for this award in future months.”Aluko said it's a great feeling to be recognised with this award.
"It’s a nice feeling to be publically rewarded for your efforts. Ultimately I think it’s a team award. I wouldn’t get this award if the team weren’t winning and it’s a credit to my team-mates and all the staff who have provided me with a platform to play well on. The results have gone our way recently and because of this I’ve been able to show my best form."Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said:
"It’s great to see Sone doing so well under Slavisa Jokanovic at Fulham after he was so unlucky with injuries at Hull.Born in England, Aluko was capped by England at all levels up to under-19 before accepting an offer to play for Nigeria. His sister, Eniola Aluko is also a professional footballer who plays for Chelsea Ladies and England Ladies.
