🎥 Man of the Match

Football

Taarabt was named the best player on the pitch in the home match against Gil Vicente.

He played the 90 minutes and was elected the man of the match in the Benfica-Gil Vicente (2-0). Taarabt devalued the individual prize, assuming being "happy for the three points".

"To be the man of the match is a good feeling, it's a pleasure, but the most important thing was to get the three points. We had a lot of players in the national teams, the return happened a few days ago. The most important thing is that we got all three points. We have an important game next week [against Leipzig for the Champions League] and we want the fans to be present like today, because it's very important to us", he claimed in statements to BTV.
