The Senegal international has been handed double prizes following his performances for the Stade Gaston Gerard outfit
Ligue 1 side Dijon have announced Alfred Gomis as the club’s Player of the Month for August and also handed him his 2019-20 Player of the Season award.
The 27-year-old teamed up with the Stade Gaston Gerard outfit in the summer of 2019 from SPAL on a four-year deal and has been outstanding for the club.
The Senegal goalkeeper played a significant role as the Owls avoided relegation from the French top-flight last season, finishing 16th on the table.

The goalkeeper made nine saves in his side’s defeat to Lyon and has become the toast of the fans who voted for him as the best player for August, beating Aurelien Scheidler and Pape Diop to the prize.

Gomis started his professional career with Italian side Torino in the summer of 2013, joining the youth setup and spent five years with the club.
He also had loan spells at Crotone, Avellino, Cesena, Bologna, Salernitana and SPAL before teaming up with the White and Blues permanently in 2018.
Gomis featured for Italy U21 team before he switched his allegiance to the Senegal national team and made his debut against South Africa in November 2017.
The goalkeeper was part of the Teranga Lions team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and featured prominently as the West African side finished as runner-up in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Gomis will hope to continue his impressive performances and helped Dijon nick their first win of the season when they face Strasbourg on September 20.
The Stade Gaston Gerard outfit are winless in their opening league outings, losing to Angers, Lyon and Brest.
