Thursday, November 10, 2016



Shakhtar fans have picked the best player of the second month of autumn

The winner is midfielder Maksym Malyshev. 177 people voted for him. In this opinion poll, the Ukrainian has been ahead of two Brazilians: Marlos and Taison. The squad reshuffling carried out by Paulo Fonseca, allowed Maksym to get more playing time in October, with his performance being noticed. The supporters appreciated the reliability of Malyshev in the holding area, his uncompromising attitude challenges for the ball and his focus on attacking. The midfielder has scored a goal against Gent, Belgium.

The second place went to Marlos. He was supported by 145 football fans. His fast dribbling and terrific possession of the ball baffled the defence of the Pitmen’s opponents many times. By the way, Marlos is one of the few Shakhtar players who took part in all the games in October.

Taison is a bit behind his compatriot. He was voted for by 139 Orange-and-Black fans. The Brazilian appeared in the team’s five games, boasting a goal against Gent.

A total of 1,517 people took part in the opinion poll on the shakhtar.com website.
