26-Year-Old Goalkeeper Sunderland Premier
Mannone finished his breakout season with 11 clean sheets and pulling his team out of relegation in his 29 games played.
Sunderland lost eight of their first nine games and then Mannone was inserted into the lineup, drawing a huge spark for the Black Cats. He was second in the league in saves with 130, playing far fewer matches then any other goalie in the top-10. Mannone has secured the number one spot and is someone to watch in coming seasons.
