Sergio Asenjo is the winner of the Five Star Player (Jugador Cinco Estrellas) award for November. The goalkeeper from Palencia has been voted by Villarreal CF fans as November’s best player as a result of his great form this month. As a matter of fact, the Villarreal number 1 is currently the goalkeeper to have let in the fewest goals in the LaLiga Santander, with 10 goals conceded in 14 matches (0.71 per game). Mahou, sponsor of the Submarine, promotes this award. The goalkeeper was presented with the award by Javier Querol, from Mahou San Miguel.
The 27-year-old was very grateful for the recognition: "It's always nice for the fans to recognize your hard work. Luckily my recovery from injury went smoothly and now I’m enjoying this good form and getting back into the Spanish national team. In terms of the team, we started very well and now we’re going through a bit of a bad patch. I hope we can put in a good performance on Thursday, as we’ve been very reliable at home. We have to keep that going".
The way to choose the Five Star Player is simple. Every month, fans 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 time period time. Once this time limit is up, votes are counted to determine the winner.
Through this initiative, Mahou Five Stars (Mahou Cinco Estrellas) announce the stand out player for each month. The prize is awarded by the fans, who cast their votes on Twitter; specifically on the '@futbolmahou' profile, 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 December. Make sure you pay attention to the '@futbolmahou' and '@villarrealcf' profiles, where the time period for voting and eventual winners will both 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 recognized, with the fans being those responsible for choosing them.
