Unot from the wizards of the Second Division. One of the ‘different’ midfielders in the silver category. Key to the joys of a LaLiga Smartbank giant. The fans have chosen Roque Mesa (Telde, 1989) as the best player after signing an exceptional season for Real Valladolid which ended with promotion to the First Division.
Mesa won the MARCA.com voteto Umar Sadiq (Almería) with 39% of the votes for 29% of the Nigerian striker. Another canary, in this case from the ‘UD‘, Jonathan Viera closed the podium with 20%. Christian Stuani (Girona) finished in the top-5 but outside the ‘metal’ positions, with 7% and Edu Expósito with 5%.
In favor of Roque Mesa is being the foundation of a solid Valladolid throughout the season. With 39 games in which he scored 3 goals -key like the great goals against Alcorcón or Almería– and 7 assists, a facet in which no player of the city that bathes the Pucela could beat him. And beyond that dose of football control, calm and different passing that he contributed to a growing midfield throughout the season.
The canary returns to the First Division in a state of form that gives him a second youth. Greening old laurels that seemed not to return after shining in that Las Palmas Sports Union that had Quique Setién at the controls. In fact, Mesa in 2021-22 has reached figures similar to those of those courses. As the average of 45 passes per game, 15 from his cap with the team led by the Cantabrian coach.
Thus and after being crowned in LaLiga SmartBank, in the opinion of MARCA viewers, will return after being pure personality, leadership and fresh air within Real Valladolid which returns from his hand in the engine room. Her continuity and strengthening that couple with Álvaro Aguado can only lead to good news.
