Fabian Schär was recently announced as the winner of the goal of the month contest put on by BBC’s Match of Day program.
Schär beat out the likes of Sergio Aguero (twice on the list), Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Anthony Martial. Schär won the contest with 32% of the vote with Anthony Martial finishing behind him with 24% of the vote.
The announcement of this “award” was a bit awkward as it came the day after Schär had one of his worst Newcastle matches as the Magpies fell short to West ham with a score of 2-0.
