Two AC Milan players were awarded at the Premio Gentleman’s Awards yesterday.
Simon Kjaer has been honoured with the Gentleman Award for the Player of the Season in Serie A for the previous season. Kjaer anchored the defence with a remarkable 27 appearances keeping pace with Alessio Romagnoli and Fikayo Tomori to support Milan’s defence. Kjaer said after winning via MilanNews.it:
“Behaving well on and off the pitch is important, it also means being an example for team-mates and fans. It was a special season without the fans at the stadium, I didn’t think it would happen in my career. We have missed our fans so much, but we have always felt close to them. We hope to see them again at the stadium soon.”
Rafael Leao also won an award for the best goal of the season for his unbelievable solo goal against Benevento where he curled the ball from outside the box at an awkward angle beating the keeper and winning the game. Leao said via Milan Reports:
“It was the best goal of my career so far, but I will try to score even better ones. Future? I dream of winning a trophy with Milan“.
