Samu Castillejo is the winner of the Five Star Player (Jugador Cinco Estrellas) award. The midfielder has been chosen by Villarreal fans as the best Submarine footballer for the months of August and September after the great form he is displaying so far this season. Mahou, sponsor of the Submarine, promotes this award.
The 21-year-old player was very grateful for the recognition: “I’m delighted to get this trophy. The fact that the fans have recognized my hard work in these first few months of competition means a lot to me and gives me the stay on this track. It is very important for the players to feel the support of the fans and awards like this motivate us. Thank you very much to Mahou and the Villarreal CF fans that voted for me”.
The Málaga native started his career at Málaga CF where he played until the summer of 2015, when he was transferred to Villarreal CF. After a noteworthy debut season, he has got off to a great start in his second season with the Submarine. The Yellows number 19 has a total of four assists and a fantastic goal from a free kick so far this campaign.
The way to choose the Five Star player is simple. Every month, fans can vote via Twitter for who they think has been the team’s best player. To do it correctly, users have to tweet the name of their chosen player with the hashtag ‘#Jugador5EstrellasCVF’ during the set period of time. Once this time limit is up, votes are counted to determine the winner.
By means of this initiative ‘Mahou Cinco Estrellas’ can announce the stand out player for each month. The prize is given by the fans who cast their votes on Twitter; specifically on the profile @futbolmahou with the collaboration of the Villarreal CF official Twitter account (@villarrealcf).
The Five Star player award will be given out every month during the season. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite player for October. Make sure you pay attention to the @futbolmahou and @villarrealcf profiles, where the time period for voting and eventual winners will be announced.
Mahou Cinco Estrellas continues to support Villarreal CF for another season. Through this initiative, every month, the best players of the team from the Castellón province are recognised, with the fans being those responsible for choosing them.
