Belarusian Andrey Gorbunov among top three goalkeepers in Greek championship, following regular season results, while Zawisza Bydgoszcz club’s Ivan Maevsky leads race for title of best halfback in Polish championship
Andrey Gorbunov has played 23 games for his club, Atromitos, saving 18 goals. Also in the top three are Spain’s Roberto Jiménez (playing for Greek champion Olympiacos FC) and Greece’s Markos Vellidis (playing for PAS Giannina FC). Andrey’s club has taken fifth place in the championship, giving it a place in the Champions League play-offs next season.
The native of Mogilev is surprised by the news, saying, “It’s absolutely unexpected. After all, this is my first season playing in Greece. It’s a great honour for me to be named among the top three goalkeepers in the championship. I’m delighted.” Andrey signed a contract with Greek Atromitos in the summer of 2014, after dissolving his contract with BATE, as mutually agreed.
Belarusian player Ivan Maevsky, who plays with Zawisza Bydgoszcz club, looks set to be named best halfback in the Polish championship, according to Weszlo.com. He is also mentioned as being among those likely to be named best mercenary of the year, from current estimations.
