“Thank you to everyone who voted for me to be Player of the Season – I’m so proud… Thank you so much.”
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored many goals than Alexandre Lacazette this season but the French star probably got the award ahead of him because of the important goals that he has scored. Aubameyang is sometimes inconsistent while Lacazette is an all round player who helps in the build up and is hardworking in all matches.
