Real Madrid star Valverde bags La Liga award

The Uruguayan has stood as one of the standout performers in Spain’s capital this season


Real Madrid star Federico Valverde has, on Thursday, secured for himself a prestigious piece of individual silverware.

The prize in question? La Liga’s Player of the Month.

As all of a Blancos persuasion will of course be fully aware, midfielder Valverde is currently in the midst of an exceptional opening to the new campaign.

Continuing to be utilised in something of an unorthodox role on the right wing by boss Carlo Ancelotti, the Uruguayan international has added a new-found element of cutting edge to his game in the final third.

Remarkably, such endeavours have given rise to direct goal contributions in no fewer than six of his last seven appearances across all competitions.

This includes a vital assist versus Real Betis, stunning strike against Mallorca, and, most recently, what proved to be the winner in the latest edition of the Madrid Derby, all across the month of September.

In turn, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, on Thursday, to hear of Valverde’s scintillating form being recognised by the powers that be in Spanish football.

As per an official announcement across the division’s social media platforms a short time ago, the 24-year-old has beaten out the competition, to clinch the award for La Liga’s Player of the Month:
