“I’m delighted for Paco that he’s had this recognition,” said head coach Anthony Pulis. “Since I came to the club he has been a model professional & a great leader within our group. He really found his groove in the 2nd half of the season after missing some time with an injury & he showed a great level of consistency in his performances.”
