The Ajax man's stunning performance against Real Madrid saw him beat out competition from Romelu Lukaku, Hugo Lloris and Moussa Marega

Ajax forward Dusan Tadic has been named the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week, presented by Santander.

His stunning performance in the Spanish capital this week saw the Dutch side dismantle reigning champions Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.

Tadic, who bagged a goal and two assists in the 4-1 win, beat off stiff competition to take the prize on a week that saw a number of outstanding individual showings.

Romelu Lukaku would have fancied his chances of taking the gong after he struck twice in an equally stunning result in France as Manchester Untied overturned a 2-0 first-leg defeat to PSG.

Hugo Lloris was also nominated for the award after shutting out Dortmund to send Tottenham through the quarter-finals, while FC Porto striker Moussa Marega rounded off the nominations for a fine display as his side defeated Roma.

Congratulations, Dušan Tadić
