Muriel is December Player of the Month

Pierluigi Gollini behind him

The Nerazzurri fans made their choice: Luis Muriel is the Player of the Month for December!

This December the initiative in collaboration with ItalianOptic has seen the first round of voting in which the Atalanta fans were able to choose their favourite footballer through the poll among the players who took part in at least one of the matches of the month.

Two finalists came out of this round who had a head-to-head battle through another poll on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram official channels. The winner is Luis Muriel while the great goalkeeper of the Nerazzurri, who pulled off some divine saves, as well as decisive ones, took second place for few votes.

In the month of December ‘Lucho’ – this is the name by which he is called by his teammates – played 6 matches for a total 198 minutes on the pitch… during which he gave a show.

He scored two goals after coming off the bench, one of them was scored during the decider at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam against Ajax, earning in this way the win and the qualification for the Champions League last 16.

Muriel is the third different winner of this contest after Zapata and Gosens. He then scored his seventh double in the Nerazzurri shirt in the 2-2 draw at the Dall’Ara against Bologna.

Enhorabuena, Lucho!
