The young Portuguese midfielder narrowly beat Thomas Lemar (24%). Tiemoué Bakayoko, who collected 20% of the votes, was third. Only current Red & Whites squad members with at least 40 appearances in 2016 were eligible.
In two and a half seasons at the club, Bernardo Silva has already made 116 appearances for AS Monaco, scoring 22 goals and providing 9 assists. While he missed Euro 2016 through injury, he came back even stronger in the first half of this season with a string of top class performances, confirming his status as a lynchpin of Leonardo Jardim's system. His two fine goals against Villarreal and Tottenham ensured his name will go down in AS Monaco history. May he go from strength to strength in 2017...
