The striker is on the four-man shortlist
Making his Valencia CF and European debut against Celtic, Rubén Sobrino earned a place on the shortlist for the Player Of The Matchday award for the UEFA Europa League. He joins Chelsea's Ross Barkley, Viktoria Plzen's Ludek Pernica and Napoli's José Callejón as candidates for the honour.
Speaking to VCF Media, the winter signing said that "I'm very happy and providing a goal and an assist made it a dream debut. I'm very happy with how I played, but above all with the victory. Ever since I found out about Valencia CF's interest in me, I was honoured, and I'm going to give everything for the club. I'm sure that, with hard work. more goals and assists will come."
"The game started intensely, and here the fans really get on your back, but we didn't really struggle. We were well positioned on the pitch. Cheryshev and I ran a lot, and tried to cut out their counterattacks. The team should be very happy tonight. I hope that we keep this confidence up, to take the three points at Mestalla in LaLiga this weekend."
