PLAYERS OF MARCH: SISSOKO, TOCHÉ & JUAN CARLOS

10 Apr 2014
For the first time three players have been chosen at the same time as the player of the month; it’s a sign of the difficult times lived by Deportivo during March, a performance mixing victories with poor presentations.

Deportivo won two games in March only losing once, but the performance of the team didn’t convince the critics and neither the fans. The team continued to face problems creating scoring chances and also played an awful game visiting CD Mirandés, which turned to be the only defeat in the period.

In this sense it isn’t surprising that there wasn’t a clear leader in the list of voting for the player of the month award. And it’s that three players collected the same number of points: striker José Verdú Nicolás ‘Toché’, playmaker Juan Carlos Real, and winger Ibrahim Sissoko. The trio collected 12 points in March.

Toché only needed a brace in the game against Hércules CF and later disappeared due to an injury; in the middle of the month Juan Carlos made a solid presentation before Real Zaragoza and was chosen as the MOM on that match, later Sissoko showed up at the starting lineup and was chosen as the best man in the home clash before CD Tenerife.

The trio were also voted for an additional game, which allowed them to add more points than the other two players that were chosen as MOM’s: keeper German Lux and playmaker Bryan Rabello. More constant was the performance of right-back Laure, who was voted in three different meetings, including the visit to Real Zaragoza, match in which he scored the winning goal. Still, he only added 9 points in the month.

Overall: Before getting injured, centre-back Pablo Insua was able to add 7 points in March, in this way he finally surpassed Culio and is now leading the race for the player of the season award. Juan Dominguez is third and Luisinho fourth at the chart and it seems the award will lie among these three players.
