Following the feats she achieved in the club including this new one, Asisat seemed to have silenced her critics.

“2017 has truly been an emotional journey for me. This is truly one of the best moments in my career. I want to encourage out there not to let people discourage you and to follow your own heart. I never thought that I would win this award. So many people had written me off because I left Arsenal for the women’s league in China. It has not been easy but I’m grateful for this award.”
