Congratulations to Rafael, who you have voted as Reading’s Player of the Month for February. It was a month of mixed results for the Royals, but two clean sheets in six appearances for the Brazilian, along with a number of important saves, saw him receive 66% of the vote (the second highest winning percentage of the season). Andy Rinomhota finished second with 18%, and January’s winner Pele was in third with 16%.

It is a fully deserved award for Rafael, who has proved to be an excellent signing after arriving on a free transfer last summer. He has adapted to life in England very quickly and is a reliable presence between the sticks. Reading have the second best defensive record outside of the top six, and a lot of that is down to the 29-year-old.
