Defender: Gabriel Paulista with 40% of the votes
💪 @gpaulista5 is all in
— Valencia CF 🦇💯 (@valenciacf) April 12, 2018
The Brazilian defender from Valencia is currently one of the best players that the Spanish club has on the roster.
We thought this award would definitely go to a Chelsea player but the fans loved the Brazilian’s performances much better.
In fact, Gabriel did finish the season on a high note after beating FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final.
Paulista delivered a gorgeous assist during that final, which perfectly describes the type of centre-back he is.
It’s a shame he didn’t make it to the Copa America squad for the summer, he would’ve made a massive difference on the team.
