Super Eagles forward Olarewaju Kayode has been voted the best player in the Austrian Bundesliga following his spectacular showing for Austria Wien.

The 24 year old also finished as top scorer in the league with 17 goals, with 7 of his other goals coming in other cup competitions.

He scored ‎five goals in the Europa league and two in the Austrian Cup to wrap up a fine season, which earned him national team call up.

Presently he is in the camp of the senior national team of Nigeria in France, where they are preparing for their upcoming AFCON 2019 Qualifiers clash against South Africa.

Kayode is expected to get his second cap when Nigeria take on Togo in a friendly game on the 1st of June after missing their Friday game against Corsica due to club commitments.
