RC Deportivo supporters have chosen Fede Valverde as October’s Estrella Player of the Month. The Uruguayan midfielder was given this award in which he was competing with his teammates Fede Cartabia and Celso Borges. Out of this triple proposal by the sports journalists who generally cover Deportivo matches, Deportivistas backed Fede Valverde with 52% of the votes (Fede Cartabia 27% and Borges 21%) on Twitter out of a total of 6,262. On RC Deportivo’s Facebook page, the majority was for Borges (261 votes; 58.8%), followed by Fede Cartabia (126 votes; 28.4%) and Fede Valverde (57 votes; 12.8%).

Fans had to choose the best player in a month that Dépor played against Eibar, Girona and Las Palmas on two occasions, once in Liga and the other in Copa del Rey. The Branquiazul number 17 is for #anosaforza the best since his season debut in First Division, in which he has played 706 minutes in LaLiga in 10 fixtures (8 of them as a starter) which resulted in him being called for his national squad for the first time ever.

Cerveceria Sampaio’s managers, Eduardo Barba and Maximino Calviño, were the ones in charge of handing the Uruguayan international his trophy at Deportivo’s training grounds in Abegondo.

Fede Valverde follows Luisinho (September) as another RC Deportivo 2017-2018 Estrella Player of the Month.
