Atletico MadridstrikerAntoine Griezmann has been named the LaLiga Santander Player of the Month for September after leading the Rojiblancos to a near-perfect points return from the four games played during September.
Atleti went unbeaten in the competition last month, recording three wins and a draw. The Madrileniansfound the net 11 times and conceded just once in this sequence, with Griezmann weighing in with five goals and an assist. These are excellent statistics for a player whose exploits propelled him to the summit of the division's goalscoring charts and who is becoming a top striker capable of making the difference in games.
This accolade - which is awarded by Santander, the competition's main sponsor, and voted for by the LaLiga.es writers - was presented by Mr Felipe Martin, the bank's marketing director for Spain. This award recognises the value of a player whose stock is rising and of whom big things are expected this term.
