Brunori awarded as January's best player in Serie BKT

Matteo Brunori wins the Serie BKT MVP Trophy for the month of January.

Another prestigious name embellishes the MVP award showcase: Palermo FC's striker Matteo Brunori #LasciailSegno as best player of the month of January, inaugurating 2023 of the Serie BKT.

The journalists of the three official broadcasters of the championship (Sky, Dazn, Helbiz), together with Giacomo Brunetti, editor-in-chief of Cronache di spogliatoio, expressed a unanimous vote in favor of the rosanero captain who took over his team, bringing it close to the playoff area.

Brunori will be awarded on the occasion of the Palermo VS Frosinone big match at the Barbera stadium, valid for the 25th match day of the championship, during the pre-match ceremonial.

The data leaves no doubt: starting from January 2023 no player has scored more goals than Brunori (three) in this Serie BKT and, among the eight players who have scored more than one goal in the second division in the new year, the rosanero number 9 boasts one of the highest scoring percentages (33.3% - three goals out of nine total shots). Furthermore, starting from January 2023, Brunori is the Palermo player who has attempted the most total shots (nine), shots on target (six) and dribbling (nine) in this Serie BKT.

Born in Brazil to Italian parents, he moved shortly after to the Belpaese where he grew up footballing in Foligno and Reggina. After a series of stages around the peninsula where he stood out with his goals, he moved to Palermo starting from 2021, becoming a point of reference and finalizer of the rosanero formation.

Between August and December 2022, he scored 9 goals and 3 assists in 19 games played, with a goal percentage of 15.2%. He made 59 total shots, 26 on goal, with an average of one goal every 187 minutes played. He was also the best Italian scorer of the 2022 calendar year, with 28 total goals, the best among the three Italian professional leagues, seasoned with 5 assists.
