Let’s pick Player of November

Monday, December 5, 2016



The last month of autumn has been successful for many Shakhtar players. Paulo Fonseca fielded 22 players in the Ukrainian League and Europa League games, of which only Dentinho and Taras Stepanenko have participated in all five encounters

Also, the Pitmen proved to be quite prolific in November. In five games they scored 15 goals. 10 different players put their names on the scoresheet. Facundo Ferreyra has become the top scorer with three goals. The striker was also voted Pepsi Man of the Match in the home game against Karpaty, in which he netted a decisive header.

Player of October Viktor Kovalenko also had a great month. The contribution of this 20-year-old midfielder to the team's success in the meeting with Dnipro (2-0) was also noted by the Premier League, who named him Player of the 16th Round.

Dentinho is also worthy of mention. The Orange-and-Blacks’ number nine, who had his contract extended in November, has been very helpful: he netted goals against Oleksandriya and Konyaspor (TUR).

Overall, the past month has been successful for the whole team, with enough candidates to choose from. The shakhtar.com audience can vote right now!
