Ibrahimovic named Ligue 1 Player of the Year

The Sweden international was named the best player in France's top flight, with Marco Verratti and Salvatore Sirigu winning individual awards, too.

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named the Ligue 1 Player of the Year following his impressive performances in 2013-14, beating teammates Thiago Silva and Thiago Motta and Monaco's James Rodriguez for the award.

The Sweden international netted 25 goals in 32 league appearances to help PSG to its second consecutive league title and is determined to help the reigning champions to more silverware in the years to come.

"For the second year in a row, it is a great honor. I want to thank all the players, the coach, the staff and the supporters," Ibrahimovic told reporters. "I think this has been my best season. The team have had a magnificent season. In the years to come I hope to win the league again, as well as the two cups, the Champions League and more individual trophies."

Meanwhile, PSG shot stopper Salvatore Sirigu was voted Goalkeeper of the Year ahead of Lille's Vincent Enyeama, while Marco Verratti scooped up the Young Player of the Year trophy and Lille boss Rene Girard won Coach of the Year.
