Bulgarian football player Ivelin Popov, who plays for Spartak Moscow, was voted both best player for the tenth round of the Russian Premier League and for the month of September.

Popov made an excellent performance in the derby against the reigning champion Zenit, scoring a beautiful goal for his team to come in the lead with 2:1.

This was the first goal scored by the Bulgarian for Spartak Moscow since his transfer from Kuban in the summer.

However it was not enough for his team to claim the final victory as Zenit managed to achieve a 2:2 draw shortly before the end of the match.

Popov garnered the maximum number of points – 15 in the poll on the website championat.com, which is determined by the votes of a special jury and the readers.
