Nigerian midfielder Mikel Agu has been picked for the third time for the Team of the Week in the Portuguese top flight after his scintillating performance for Vitoria Setubal over the weekend.
The young Nigerian star was picked alongside Algeria international Yacine Brahimi of FC Porto.
"I am so excited to make the Team of the Week for the third time this season, that tells you about my hard work and trying to be the best in my position as far as Portuguese league is concerned,” said Mikel Agu, who is on a season-long loan from FC Porto.
"I thank God and my wife for being there for me, she is my source of inspiration, she inspires me a lot.
"I dedicate my inclusion in the Team of the Week to Almighty God.
"I will do more to achieve more success.”
Vitoria Setubal are now ninth on the table with 19 points from 15 matches and defensive midfielder Mikel has made a dozen appearances for them in the league.
