Monaco skipper Ludovic Giuly has been handed the Championnat Player of the Month award for November.
It is the second time the 27-year-old has scooped the gong so far this season as he continues to inspire the league leaders in their title charge.
Didier Deschamps' side are now eight points clear at the top of the French table and Giuly has played a major part in their fine run.
Giuly was delighted to have been handed the award for the second time, and said that it was also due to the displays of the team that he had been given the award again.
"I am particularly touched by this award," said Giuly.
"At first, because I haven't been given a lot in my whole career, and then because I think that the whole Monaco team is shown in a good light through me."
Giuly scooped the gong over Lyon's Juninho and Montpellier's Rui Pataca.
