French Ligue 1 leaders Lille named veteran Turkish forward Burak Yılmaz its player of the month for April, the club announced Wednesday.
The side from northern France congratulated the 35-year-old forward on Twitter.
Yilmaz was in great form in April, scoring three goals in four matches.
Two of those goals, plus an assist came on April 25th in a crucial tie against title rival Lyon.
Yılmaz hit the target twice to help his team a 3-2 win and reclaim the Ligue 1 top spot from defending champion Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Lille had trailed by two goals shortly before half-time, but Yılmaz inspired an unlikely fightback to send Lille one point clear of PSG.
Since joining Lille from Beşiktaş on a free transfer last year, he has registered 13 goals in 25 league matches. He had nine league goals for Lille before a calf injury sustained in January ruled him out for 13 games, and contributed to a gradual loss of form for Christophe Galtier's side.
But since his return, Yılmaz has proved crucial to Lille's chances of a first league title since it clinched a domestic double in 2010.
