Awards: Europa League’s best players

Forward: Olivier Giroud with 85% of the votes

Even though we know that Olivier Giroud isn’t actually one of those strikers who scores a lot of goals, this Europa League season was very different for the French international.

Matthijs de Ligt, Juventus

Fabio Capello backs quality Matthijs de Ligt to improve

Former Juventus boss Fabio Capello is confident Matthijs de Ligt will bounce back from a shaky start and rediscover his best form in Turin over time.

Giroud has evolved to become one of the best centre-forwards in the world. When he left Arsenal thinking he could get more opportunities at Chelsea, Olivier never imagined he would win the tournament playing against his former club.

In fact, Giroud even scored a goal in the final and he finished the season as the top-scorer with 11 goals scored.

This Frenchman might be one of the most overrated players in the world, he has already won some of the most important trophies any player can dream of.
