Fulham central defender Tosin Adarabioyo was delighted after being named in the English Football League Championship Team of the Season for 2021-2022.
The former England youth international of Nigerian descent played a key role in Fulham’s immediate return to the Premier League, starting 40 of the 44 matches contested by the Cottagers in the Championship.
Adarabioyo was one of three Super Eagles-eligible players honoured with a place in the division’s best XI, the others being Bournemouth duo Philip Billing and Dominic Solanke.
The Manchester City academy product has helped Fulham post fourteen shutouts this season and got his name on the scoresheet twice while providing two assists in 3,595 minutes of action.
“There were four of us in Team of the Year and it could have been more, so it was good.”
Adarabioyo wasn’t the only Nigerian representative in the divisional XI comprising the top performers, as Rotherham United centre-back Michael Ihiekwe was selected in the League One Team of the Season.
