Martin Ødegaard has been awarded the prize for this year’s Football Player in the Dutch province of Gelderland.
It is the local newspaper Omroep Gelderland that every season chooses the best player among the clubs within its area.
The newspaper’s reporters distribute points after each series round, and with two rounds left to play, Ødegaard has a lead that is not possible to overtake.On Monday he was therefore rewarded with a prize and cake at Vitesse’s training field.
The Norwegian stands with 43 points, 11 more than De Graafschap player Youssef El Jebli. Then Vitesse teammates Thulani Serero and Bryan Linssen follow with 24 points each.
Ødegaard has been a big play for the Dutch club this season. Where the Norwegian will play next season is not clear at this time.
