Shakhtar fans selected the best player of the past month

The winner in April is Shakhtar midfielder Taison. 288 poll participants voted for him. The number 28 notched up three goals in six matches of the month. The Brazilian’s effective shots allowed the Orange-and-Blacks to mark the victory in the meeting vs Zorya (2-1) and reach the Ukrainian Cup final after the success vs Dnipro (1-0).

Andriy Pyatov was very close to claiming a kind of ‘hat trick’. The Player of the Month for February and March got 256 votes and claimed the second spot. By the way, the match vs Oleksandriia (1-0) has been the Donetsk keeper’s 250th league appearance.

Facundo Ferreyra closes the top three. He was supported by 246 fans. In April, the Argentine striker returned to the starting line-up after injury and scored three goals in four matches, which allowed him to become the sole leader in the Premier League scoring race. Facundo netted the winning goal against Dynamo, being his 20th Ukrainian League success. Ferreyra achieved that result after 41 games, beating the previous club record holder Julius Aghahowa, who amassed 20 goals in 45 appearances.

A total of 1,678 people took part in the opinion poll on shakhtar.com.
