In the summer he wanted to go on strike with AS Roma, now he has won the Europa League with Eintracht Frankfurt and, to top it all off, is receiving an international award: Filip Kostic!
Player of the Year: Eintracht Frankfurt’s left winger Filip Kostic has been named “Europa League Player of the Season”. This was decided by the European Football Union’s technical observer body, according to a UEFA statement on Friday.
Strong performances: The 29-year-old Serb impressed throughout the competition with his willingness to run and his goal threat. His cross for Rafael Borré’s equalizer in the final against Glasgow Rangers was his sixth assist of the competition.
Prize for Knauff: Ansgar Knauff, another player from the Frankfurt winning team, was voted the best young player in the Europa League this season. The 20-year-old came on loan from league rivals Borussia Dortmund in January and quickly established himself as a regular. The midfielder didn’t miss a minute in the knockout stages, scoring well against FC Barcelona and West Ham United.
