Bologna, Riccardo Calafiori player of the month in Serie A

The EA SPORTS FC Player Of The Month award for May has been given to Bologna footballer Riccardo Calafiori. The Azzurri defender will be awarded during the pre-match of Genoa-Bologna, scheduled for Friday, May 24, 2024 at 8:45 p.m. at the stadium 'Luigi Ferraris' in Genoa.

Riccardo Calafiori è turned out to be the mostù voted by fans on the Lega Serie A website, surpassing the likes of Gleison Bremer (Juventus), Milan Djuric (Monza), Christian Pulisic (AC Milan), Gianluca Scamacca (Atalanta), Matias Vecino (Lazio).

The sextina had been selected taking into account Stats Perform’s evolved analysis, made from tracking data recorded with the Hawk-Eye system. The rating system, patented in 2010 with K-Sport and scientifically validated, considers not only statistical data and technical events, but also positional data. This makes it possible to analyze crucial aspects such as movement without the ball and thus optimal movements, game choices, and contribution to the team’s technical and physical efficiency, which allow an objective and qualitative assessment of performance.

"Riccardo Calafiori è the first Bologna player to receive the Player Of The Month award since the Lega Serie A instituted this recognition in 2019, confirming his great growth in rossoblù which has consecrated him as a fundamental element of the second best defense in the Championship to date – said Lega Serie A CEO Luigi De Siervo -. Pliability, elegance, uncommon setting skills and an unexpected scoring ability in the matches of the month of May have led the strong Felsine defender to be chosen as the best of this month, a deserved nomination for one of the best young Italian talents of Serie A TIM".
