Brazilian striker Jhonnattann Benites de Conceicao’s electric performances with Birkirkara F.C. have landed him the BOV Player of the Month award for December 2012.
The 23-year-old Brazilian is doing his best to ensure Birkirkara win every honour available this season. During the month of December Jhonnattann was also voted Player of the Game for every match played by the club.
Like many other foreigners, Jhnonnattann’s decision to leave his homeland for Malta was motivated by his ambition to play in Europe. The nimble striker arrived in Malta in June 2012.
Marvic Doughty, Manager at Bank of Valletta Fleur-de-Lys branch, presented the BOV Player of the Month Trophy for December 2012 to Jhonnattann Benites de Conceicao who chose Dar Pirotta as the beneficiary of the donation related to this award.
