ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC has hands down won in the poll for the 2011/2012 season Player of the Season.
Milan will kick off the new season officially in a little more than a week as on July 9th the players will arrive to training ground Milanello for the annual get together and the official first training of the 2012/13 season.
The last season is long gone for some time now and we asked you in mid-May who was the best player of the 2011/2012 season. The results were not very surprising as one player won by some distance.
Thousands of people voted on the website and in the seventh and last place came Christian Abbiati with just 1.24% of the votes despite his good season. In sixth arrived Antonio Cassano with 1.79% of the votes; Cassano didn’t play for five months after his heart problem but proved more than vital every time he played.
Alessandro Nesta who decided to leave Milan after this season finished fifth with 3.86% of the votes following a season which at times showed he’s still world-class. Kevin-Prince Boateng came in fourth with 5.65% of the votes. Boateng was plagued by injuries and couldn’t play consistently. Antonio Nocerino who won the best summer signing poll came in third with 13.37% of the votes after a great season.
In second arrived the man of was very close to leaving for Paris Saint-Germain a couple of weeks ago – Thiago Silva with 17.4% of the votes following a year that showed he’s one of the best in the world. And the man who’s won the voting is…drum rolls… Zlatan Ibrahimovic! It was not really a competition for the Swede who beat all the other candidates with 54.36% of the votes. Ibrahimovic had a great season in which he finished as the Capocannoniere of the Serie A. The remaining 2.34% belong to the Other: option.
Ibrahimovic will hope to continue his fantastic 2011/2012 form also next season and get Milan back on winning ways after a year in which the Rossoneri had failed to win trophies. Can he win it again next year?
