Spanish midfielder polls 34% of the vote and is revelling in new role
David Silva has been voted as the Bluemoon Player of the Month for March 2017. The mercurial Spanish midfielder won 34% of the vote after a series of impressive displays, and netted his seventh goal of the season in the FA Cup quarter final victory at Middlesbrough. Silva is thriving in a deeper midfield role under Pep Guardiola, and has been rewarded with the captaincy on a number of occasions this season.
John Stones finished second with 29% of the votes cast, and his recent performances against Monaco and Liverpool earned the plaudits of Guardiola. "I love him. Under pressure, the people criticise him, so I am delighted to have John. With all his huge amount of mistakes. I love him. I love guys with this personality."
Leroy Sane, who won the two previous award for January and February, was third with 15% of the vote. The German international netted three time in March, against Huddersfield, Sunderland, and Monaco, and provided one assist.
