Nine out of 15 experts chose Sivasakthi as the top pick.

In an official announcement on their website Hero ISL, Bengaluru FC striker Sivasakthi Narayanan has been awarded the Emerging Player of the Month for January 2023 for his spectacular performances across his side’s four wins in January.

The youngster was pivotal in the Blues’ four wins, registering four goals and one assist. Sivasakthi fought his way into the starting lineup under head coach Simon Grayson and, since then, has been reaping the rewards with his goal contributions.
On a four-game winning streak, his side has leapfrogged into the sixth position, in contention for the playoffs berth alongside Odisha FC, who share the same number of points.
