PABLO MARÍ (Flamengo / Arsenal)

The Spanish central defender has had a season in which he has lived through everything. The first half was played by Flamengo, with whom he started and played a leading role in achieving the Copa Libertadores. After that, he changed teams to play for Arsenal, with which he has not finished having the desired role.


The veteran center back has consolidated himself behind Porto. With outstanding performances, the former Villarreal has made it easier for the club to finish leading the league.
