Sadiq, best player of January

LaLiga chooses the Nigerian as the best footballer of the month ahead of Sergio Ruiz and Bernardo Espinosa. He returns to eleven tomorrow against Fuenlabrada.


Umar Sadiq is the footballer of the moment in the Second Division. The Almería striker monopolizes the spotlight game after game and it is not surprising that in summer he blows the bench with a transfer that exceeds even that of Darwin Núñez (24 million euros). In relation to the Uruguayan, the Nigerian is on the way to surpassing his scoring record last year (he is five to equal the 16 of the Uruguayan). His fantastic month of January has made LaLiga choose him as the best footballer of the month in the silver category of Spanish football. The '9' has surpassed Sergio Ruiz, Las Palmas midfielder, and Bernardo Espinosa, Girona defender.

The former Partizan Belgrade has been unleashed with the start of the year, materializing half a dozen goals in the first month of the year, which he opened in style, with a hat-trick against Ponferradina, something he had never done before as a professional. The good moment ratified it against Sabadell, making another. He also wet against Castellón, in addition to that great assistance to José Corpas, who, with nine goals, is another of José Gomes' main assets.

Sadiq, for whom Sevilla asked in the market that expired last Monday, will return tomorrow (8:30 pm) at eleven in Fernando Torres. The African striker did not act from the beginning against Sevilla to avoid a possible sanction and tomorrow he will be the game again in the eleven of José Gomes, looking against Fuenlabrada to extend his particular streak: of his last eight league games he only remained without seeing goal against Espanyol, scoring a dozen goals in that space of time.

Those numbers have catapulted him to fight for the top scorer in the Second Division along with two other beasts, the case of Raúl de Tomás and Uros Djurdjevic, something that seemed almost impossible at the beginning of the season, when the '9' of the UDA did not start well. foot in the discipline of Almeria. The Madrilenian has thirteen goals, twelve for the Serbian (he left Partizan before the Nigerian landed in Belgrade) and eleven for Sadiq, having scored the first three from penalties, for one of each of the rojiblancos. Of course, Almería has one less game (they have to make up the postponed in Leganés) .
