Who's the best in May?

Sunday, June 4, 2017



Last month, the Orange-and-Blacks claimed the title early and lifted the Ukrainian Cup

Paulo Fonseca fielded 29 players in the games in May. There is no obvious favourite in our nomination, as every player has made a significant contribution to claiming the golden double.

Separately worth noting Marlos, who turned out to be one of the central figures in the Ukrainian Cup finals, since his well-placed finish put a seal on a victory over Dynamo (1-0). Taison produced a high-level performance in the decisive part of the season. Another Brazilian Alan Patrick made a mark by adding a goal to his account and registering an assist in the match versus Dynamo. Facundo Ferreyra had been very helpful throughout the previous month. Therefore, Shakhtar's top scorer laid the foundation for the golden victory at Zorya thanks to his pinpoint shot.

May 2017 became remarkable for the defender Ivan Ordets. Following the results of the encounter versus the Luhansk-based side, he was recognized as Pepsi Man of the Match. Thanks to his confident defensive performance and the second goal notched, he made a significant contribution to the overall victory. Bohdan Butko grabbed his debut gold as he registered a goal against Olimpik (1-1) and assist in the clash against Chornomorets (3-0). We should mention Taras Stepanenko, who crossed a milestone of 200 appearances for Shakhtar in the meeting with Oleksandriia (1-1).
