Each month, we select the TOTM featuring only Maurice Revello Tournament graduates who have shone with their clubs and/or their national teams. Let’s take a look at the players who stole the show in January 2021.
Yassine Bounou (Sevilla FC)
First appearance for the Moroccan goalkeeper in the TOTM this season. The Maurice Revello Tournament 2012 graduate has been decisive for the Andalusians as he notably kept 2 clean sheets, helping his side to earn 4 wins on January.
João Cancelo (Manchester City)
One goal, 2 assists and 8 wins in as many games played on Janaury : the Portuguese fullback has enjoyed a tremendous start to the year at both individual and collective levels !
Marquinhos (Paris SG)
Since returning to his natural position, that’s to say centre-back, the Maurice Revello Tournament 2014 winner has produced a string of strong performances. Undeniably, a pivotal player for the Parisians.
Ruben Dias (Manchester City)
Amazingly consistent, the Portuguese defender brings an air of calm and stability to a defence that lacked leadership over the last seasons. Pep Guardiola has shown a lot of faith in him and the Benfica former player is repaying the trust put in him.
Falaye Sacko (Vitoria Guimarães)
With 3 wins and one draw in 4 games on January, the Mali international and his club have enjoyed a good start to the 2021 year. Seen at the Maurice Revello Tournament 2016, Sacko is consistently improving in Portugal and established himself as one of the most reliable fullbacks in the league.
Sergio Oliveira (FC Porto)
With 3 goals and one assist, the Portugal international has played a pivotal role in the Porto’s good run this month : 4 wins in 5 games played on January.
Ibrahim Sangaré (PSV Eindhoven)
The Toulouse former player is in stunning form. In addition to impressive displays, the Ivory Coast international has also netted a goal and delivered an assist on January.
Luis Muriel (Atalanta)
After difficult times, Atalanta bounced back over the last weeks and their return to form has owed partly to the Colombian’s goalscoring form as the Maurice Revello Tournament 2011 winner found the net 5 times on January.
Harvey Barnes (Leicester City)
The English attacking midfielder is clearly one of the Premier League revelations this season. On January, the Maurice Revello Tournament 2017 winner netted 3 goals and delivered 2 assists. Pure talent !
Bast Dost (FC Bruges)
Signed by the Belgian giants from Frankfurt during the winter transfer window, the Dutch striker has been decisive at every game he played since his arrival : 5 goals and one assist. Dream start to life at Bruges !
Sébastien Haller (Ajax Amsterdam)
Like Bas Dost, the Maurice Revello Tournament 2014 runner-up quickly adapted to his new team. Signed by Ajax Amsterdam from West Ham on January, the Ivory Coast international has netted 2 goals and delivered 4 assists since joining his new club.
