Porto's Sanusi Joins Manchester United, Barcelona, Bayern Stars In Official UCL TOTWPublished: November 26, 2020
Nigeria international Zaidu Sanusi has been included in the official UEFA Champions League Fantasy Team of the Week by the governing body of European football UEFA.
The Porto left-back impressed as Porto registered an impressive 2-0 road win against Marseille at the Orange Vélodrome on Wednesday night.
Thirty nine minutes into the contest came his finest moment in a Porto shirt to date as he broke the deadlock, firing home the rebound after his initial effort from close range was saved by goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.
In a 3-5-2 formation, Sanusi, the only Porto player named in the Team of the Week, slotted in as the left-sided central defender.
Borussia Mönchengladbach have contributed three players to the best XI followed by Barcelona with two in the form of Sergiño Dest and Martin Braithwaite.
Bruno Fernandes, two-goal hero in Manchester United's 4-1 rout of Istanbul Basaksehir, Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman and Mönchengladbach's Lars Stindl were all handed spots in midfield.
Sanusi has started all the four matches played by Porto in this season's Champions League and was in action for 347 minutes without being cautioned.
