Ezequiel Garay is December's best!

Fans voted and made their last pick of 2014 — the team's best player at the end of the month (and the second time this year) is the Blue-White-Sky Blues' defender, Ezequiel Garay!

The Argentinian took place in all three of «Zenit's» matches in December, and in each of those games the fans rated Ezequiel as one of the top three players in the match.

Garay has been playing for the Blue-White-Sky Blues since July of 2014. He has played a total of 26 games thus far and has 1 goal and 3 assists to his name. The defender made 25 challenges (winning 66.5% of them), 80 clears and 9 blocks. In addition to these already impressive stats, Garay made 1086 passes at a precision rate of 83.5% and created 4 scoring moments.

Axel Witsel and Igor Smolnikov rounded out second and third place in the December voting.

Ezequiel will collect his prize after the break.

«Zenit» thanks their fans for their selection and congratulates all the victors on their well earned prizes. The next time a footballer will be selected as the best of the month will be at the end of February after the St. Petersburg side has played their first official matches of 2015.
