Fans of Shakhtar have picked the Player of the Month for September

The winner is Viktor Kovalenko. 148 poll participants voted for him. Shakhtar midfielder stands out due to his confident and mature performance, playing a key role in every game on the football field. In September, the 20-year-old Ukrainian netted a goal against Braga, Portugal, as well as excellent attacking performance in a number of other meetings.

The second position belongs to Fred. He was appreciated by 135 football fans. This season, the Brazilian has become an indispensable link in midfield, competently orchestrating the Donetsk team’s actions. Even though he scored no goals in September, the 23-year-old midfielder carried out a huge amount of work.

The debut of the Shakhtar Academy graduate Bohdan Butko was not left unnoticed. Now we can definitely say that he is a worthy replacement on the right wing of the captain Darijo Srna, who got injured in the meeting against Dynamo. From the opening matches, the Ukrainian got down to work in two games in a row (against Dynamo and Konyaspor), excelling through his immaculate assists. In the duel with Volyn, Butko was named Man of the Match. 121 fans voted for Bohdan.

A total of 1,385 people took part in the opinion poll on shakhtar.com website.
