Saint-Maximin, man of September

Allan Saint-Maximin is your Aiglon of the Month for September. With 42% of the vote, the forward just pipped Youcef Atal to the title (38%). Walter Benitez completes the podium (20%).

His involvement and consistency have made the difference, like his movement and his speed. Voted ‘Man of the Match’ during the victory over Nantes (2-1), with an assist for Christophe Jallet, then the elected best Niçois during the defeat against Paris (0-3), Allan Saint-Maximin continues his progress with consistency. Mobile, quick, the youth international is “involved in everything that is good” offensively for the Aiglons, and is delighting at the huge freedom that he boasts in his movement. Having started each of the nine Ligue 1 games this season, the “cheetah" is moving forward, with appetite. 

Behind him, you chose Youcef Atal. Always explosive, always full of attack, the Algerian interactional is confirming his form week after week. And he maintains a real battle for competition with Christophe Jallet, another important element for the Red and Blacks. Finally, Walter Benitez completes the trio. Decisive during the win over Rennes (2-1), which kicked off the month, the Argentine keeper has shown what he is made of, demonstrating strength and calmness.
