Kvaratskhelia named Serie A Player of the Year ahead of Osimhen
Napoli winger, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been named Serie A player of the year ahead of his team-mate, Victor Osimhen.
Kvaratskhelia will be presented with the award on Saturday, before they play their final fixture at home to Sampdoria.
The Georgia international only arrived at Napoli last season for a reported fee of €10 million.
Kvaratskhelia was crucial to his team winning their first Serie A title in 33 years.
So much so that the 22-year-old earned the nickname “Kvaradona” in homage to Napoli hero Diego Maradona, who led the team to their only two previous league titles.
“With 12 goals and 10 assists, Kvaratskhelia was one of the leading players for the Azzurri, who won the Scudetto and made many fans and lovers of beautiful football dream,” Serie A CEO Luigi De Siervo said.
