Manchester City starlet Pablo Maffeo was awarded the ‘Jugador amb Més Projecció’ (Player with the Most Potential) award at the Catalan Football Gala on Monday night.
Maffeo was named the player who showed the most potential in all of Catalan football during the 2016-17 season, when he was also on loan at Girona and helped them win promotion to Spain’s top flight.
The Spain under-21 international fended off rumoured Man City target Aarón Martín of Espanyol and Sassuolo’s Pol Lirola to win the honour, and was given his trophy at the Antigua Fàbrica Damm last night.
Pablo has made 11 starts in La Liga for Girona this season, recently assisting a goal in their famous 2-1 win over Real Madrid. He also recently won a call-up to Spain’s under-21 set-up, just one level below their senior national team.
