Player of the month by ItalianOptic 2021/22

The POTM initiative

Player of the month is the initiative in collaboration with ItalianOptic that Atalanta has dedicated to their fans who vote for the best Atalanta player of the month on our social accounts.

At the end of the first round, the two players with the most likes will compete for the Player of the Month award

March – Merih Demiral

Ruslan Malinovskyi passes the title of the player of the month to Merih Demiral! The Turkish defender triumphs again after collecting the award in January and wins the ItalianOptic Player of the Month for the second time this season!

February – Ruslan Malinovskyi

Demiral, the winner for January, has to make way for a new Player of the Month Ruslan Malinovskyi, who gets a brace, winning the award again in February after his success in December!

January – Merih Demiral

After Duván Zapata’s victories in the first part of the season and the triumph of Ruslan Malinovskyi in December, it’s Merih Demiral to receive the first Player of the Month award of 2022!

December – Ruslan Malinovskyi

After the POTM “hat-trick” of Duván Zapata, the award goes to Ukraine: Ruslan Malinovskyi is the Player of the Month for December!

November – Duván Zapata

Here’s the verdict: a hat-trick for Duván Zapata who has been confirmed again as the Player of the Month for November! He wins the Player of the Month award for the third straight time. After his success in August-September and October, the Colombian forward made it a hat-trick!

October – Duván Zapata

The Player of the Month award couldn’t be given to anyone else but him: Duván Zapata has been chosen as the best Atalanta player again for October, after his feat in August and September.

August/September – Duván Zapata

Despite missing the first two matches of the season to injury, Duván Zapata made his mark in the remaining Serie A and Champions League games, deservedly winning the ‘Player of the Month’ award for August and September.
