|Yakubu misses a goal scoring opportunity during the 2010 World Cup|
Blackburn Rovers' hot-shot Yakubu Aiyegbeni has been named as Match of the Day magazine's Player of the Month for December.
Yak scored seven goals in December - more than any other Premier League player. He netted all four in Rovers' 4-2 victory over
Swansea, took his top-flight tally
into double figures with a fine finish against Bolton
and bagged a brilliant brace in the famous 3-2 victory over Manchester United
at Old Trafford.
On receiving the award, he said: "Beating Man United was probably my favourite, because everyone thought that we didn't stand a chance. So to score two goals and to get the three points was great - and it rounded off a really good December for us."
