PLAYER OF JANUARY: BODIPO

04 Feb 2009
Rodolfo Bodipo won his second POM (player of the month award) on the season; it was a negative month for Deportivo as the squad lost five of the six matches disputed in the period, but the Pe?±a members awarded the Guinean striker due to his performance in liga against Getafe and Sevilla.

Second straight month in which Rodolfo Bodipo is earning the player of the month award, the ex-Alav?©s attacker started strongly the year 2009 as he shined against Getafe FC, scoring the opening goal in the match and being the most important attacker in the game, which ended to be the only victory of Depor in the January.

Three days later the �reserves’ fell down in Copa against Sevilla (1-2), no matter the setback, it was considered as a positive result since it kept the options intact for the second-leg. Juan Carlos Valer??n was chosen as the most important player for the occasion. Later Bodipo gained his second MOM award of the month as he scored the lonely goal in the liga encounter against Sevilla; it was a new defeat against the Andalusians, but the work done by the Guinean attacker worth the prize.

The next two games, in Copa against Sevilla and in liga against Barcelona, were a disaster. Both games ended with humiliating defeats (0-3 and 0-5), Pablo Alvarez against Sevilla and Daniel Aranzubia, despite allowing five goals and been sent off in the game with Barca, were voted as the best players in those encounters.  Bodipo ended second in the poll for Sevilla’s match.

The final game in the month was the 0-1 defeat with Real Madrid, Bodipo left the pitch injured during the first half, and the Pe?±a members preferred the work of Valer??n who shined in the game with his passes, De Guzm??n, who had a solid game in midfield, ended second in the poll.
