"I am delighted to be awarded this great honour. I want to thank the fans for their initiative because it will spur us as players to do better.

"I also want to thank my teammates because I wouldn’t have done well without their support. Also much thanks to the coaches for their support always,” Erambo told Tusker Media.

The fans' Player of the Month award marks a new initiative aimed at acknowledging the best-performing players every month.

Erambo, a defensive midfielder who joined Tusker from Mombasa Elite, has quickly established himself as a pivotal player under coach Robert Matano's guidance since making the transition from the National Super League to the Football Kenya Federation Premier League.
