The decision has been a tough one to make this week. Morocco’s Younes Belhanda performed brilliantly for Montpellier as they beat a dogged, relegation-threatened Sochaux to maintain their position at the top of Le Championnat. The mesmerising Moroccan was substituted to a standing ovation late in the game thanks to the way he dazzled the crowd with Zizou-esque roulette turns and through-the-keyhole through-balls. Meanwhile, in Spain, Valencia and Algeria’s Sofiane Feghouli looked very mature in possession in Valencia’s 4-0 destruction of AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League. Playing as a right-midfielder, his crossing was a constant problem for the AZ centre-backs and he showed a simplistic touch of flair when he was on the ball when combining with right-back Antonio Barragan.
