Liam Moore: Leicester defender named Young Player of the Month

Moore has cemented a place at the heart of the Foxes defence this season and his side went unbeaten in the month, while he grabbed his first career goal in the 2-0 win over Wigan.

Moore said: "It is very nice. It is something I will be able to keep forever and it's an achievement.

"But if it's personal success or team success then I will pick team success every day. If they both come together then I couldn't be more grateful."

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson said: "Liam has had a very good start to the season - and he did last year. As a young player he has developed very well.

"He has worked exceptionally hard. He is playing alongside experienced players and experienced players can sometimes be the best coaches.

"It's great for him to pick up an award as an individual but he would be the first to recognise that to win awards like that you have to be part of an effective team and he has contributed very well so far."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
