Mathieu Debuchy has been named Player of the Month for February in Ligue 1, beating out competition from Neymar.
Nominated for the award for the first time in five years (and Thiago Silva won it that month), Debuchy has excelled since finally leaving Arsenal in January, with two goals in six appearances.
It’s not surprising Debuchy has hit the ground running.
The right-back has a point to prove, especially with the World Cup coming up in the summer.
Plus, in his limited appearances for Arsenal this season, the 32-year-old looked solid.

Debuchy was never going to get ahead of Hector Bellerin at Arsenal, and his recent injury record is concerning.
Leaving was the right choice, but he should be able to push on now with Les Verts and could well be on his way to Russia this summer.
