Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Raffael voted Bundesliga player of the weekendThe 28-year-old has been in fine form this season
The Brazilian midfielder was chosen as the weekend’s best player by Kicker magazine.
Borussia Monchengladbach beat Hertha Berlin 3-0 in this week’s round of Bundesliga matches and Raffael put in a man of the match performance with a classy display.
The 28-year-old from Ceará was praised for his precise passing, incisive dribbling and dangerous shots.
An excellent performance was capped off with his side’s third goal which his brother, Ronny, playing for Hertha Berlin, must have been secretly applauding.
It’s the first time that Raffael has been voted the Bundesliga’s best player on any game weekend but the third time this season that he’s been selected in the weekend’s best XI.
