The award will be presented to the Napoli defender in the pre-match of
Napoli vs Torino
The EA SPORTS Player Of The Month award for September has been assigned to Napoli player Kalidou Koulibaly. The trophy will be presented during the pre-match of Napoli vs Torino, scheduled for Sunday 17th October 2021 at 6pm at the "Diego Armando Maradona" Stadium in Naples.
The ranking was compiled according to the statistical data of Stats Perform (a system patented in 2010 with K-Sport), with the help of tracking data recorded by Netco Sports.
For the final calculation were considered the matchdays from 1st to 6th of Serie A TIM 2021/2022.
“This is the first time since this award was created that the prize has been presented to a defender. Kalidou Koulibaly has certainly shown in these years that he is among the strongest defenders on the international scene. Strength, speed and the ability to read game situations make Koulibaly a key player for Napoli, who is also capable of being important in the opponent's area, as demonstrated by the two goals he has scored in this early season." said Luigi De Siervo, CEO of Lega Serie A.
