The Brazilian midfielder pipped Jackson Irvine to the award, and says he hopes to be in regular contention for the prize in the months to come.
“I would like to say thank you to the fans, as well as my team-mates and the staff here, because I was very happy to find out that I had won the award,” said Evandro.
“It was great to score my first goal of the season in the first game but of course this is in the past now so my focus is on the next game and trying to do more for the team. This is what I want – to give my best and help my team-mates and the manager to get Hull City into a good position in the table.”
Evandro would no doubt be just as happy to supply more assists like the one he did for Todd Kane’s goal against Derby County just before the international break, and the 32-year-old says the Tigers’ second half performance against the Rams, though in a losing cause, set a standard that they must continue to match.
“It has been a hard start to the season but I thought the second half performance against Derby showed a good example from us,” continued the former Porto midfielder.
“We played very well for that 45 minutes and we need to reproduce that for the full game when we play against Ipswich on Saturday. It is a standard that we all need to keep to.”
