Joel Matip is the first Cameroonian to win Premier League's monthly award

In February, the center-back played every minute of Liverpool's four matches, conceding only one goal.

He scored in the Reds' 6-0 win over Leeds and assisted Diogo Jota in their 2-1 win over Leicester.

Che Adams, Ryan Fraser, Harry Kane, Ben Mee, and Wilfried Zaha were among the nominees for the February award.

After becoming dissatisfied with the way Cameroon's football organization administered the sport, the 31-year-old has not played for the country since 2015.

He has 27 caps for the Indomitable Lions, including appearances at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, and various coaches have tried in vain to persuade him to return in recent years.
