Matias Suarez was elected Pro Player of the Year by his football colleagues! Mati, who already took the Golden Shoe this year, became one of the star players at the Purple & White this season. In the season 2011-2012 he showed his class often and he also provided his team with 14 assists and 11 goals in the Belgian league. At the beginning of the decisive JPL Play-Offs for the title, the Argentinian was injured, but he was still a key player with four assists and one goal in seven matches.
In the UEFA Europa League, the Purple & White Golden Shoe also excelled. In the UEL, Sporting’s ball virtuoso, who became 24 years old this week, even became top scorer in the group stage with seven goals in six games. ‘Mister Europe’ also provided his team mates with three assists. Matias Suarez follows Ivan Perisic as laureate.
