Star Midfielder Named Juventus Player of The Month

Juventus vice-captain Adrien Rabiot went from strength to strength toward the end of 2023, cementing his status as the beating heart of Massimiliano Allegri’s midfield. Proud of his achievements on the field, club supporters have given the Frenchman a fitting reward for his sterling performances, voting him the ‘EA Sports FC December Player of the Month,’ as per Binaconeri’s site.

Following another summer filled with controversy and uncertainty, Rabiot pledged his short-term future to Juventus despite the club’s lack of ambition in the transfer window. However, his decision to stick with the Turin giants could prove a season-defining commitment that, in the face of skepticism, may culminate in Bianconeri clinching the title.

Rabiot has led Allegri’s midfield with authority this season, with his performance hitting a pinnacle moment in December. Trusted with the armband in the absence of long-serving stalwart Danilo, the 28-year-old excelled last month, netting two crucial goals to keep Juventus within striking distance of Serie A leaders Inter. 

He broke the deadlock in a late 2-1 victory at Monza at the start of the month before netting a match-winner in a 1-0 home triumph against Roma to close out 2023. The fact Juventus drew the only December fixture without Rabiot in their starting lineup perhaps best illustrates his significance to this team.

Juventus fans have not let his heroics go unnoticed. With nine goals in 2023, Rabiot enjoyed his most prolific calendar year, and receiving the flattering award from the faithful is the fitting way to gain recognition for his immense contribution.
