Kepa Arrizabalaga wins La Liga News UK fans’ Athletic Club Player of the seasonApril 27, 2018
Kepa Arrizabalaga wins La Liga News UK fans’ Athletic Club Player of the season, being pushed closely by Inaki Williams.
With our La Liga News UK Awards starting last week with Alaves’ Player of the Season, we now take a look at Athletic Bilbao, who have had an indifferent season.
The Basque side have struggled for consistency, making it hard to select a consistent performer, however, we whittled it down to five players, which include Inaki Williams, Kepa, Iker Muniain, Unai Nunez and Raul Garcia.
And, after much voting – a winner has been chosen in young keeper Kepa, who 45% of the votes.
Kepa has been in remarkable form this season, thus prompting Real Madrid to nearly sign him in January.
The young keeper has two man of the match awards this season, and has been largely faultless. Now, second choice to David De Gea for the Spanish national side, the future looks bright for the 23-year-old.
Inaki Williams, who has been impressive all season, came in second place, gaining 32% of votes, whilst the remaining votes were shared between Garcia, Muniain and Nunez.
Williams has been brilliant, leading the line in the absence of the ageing Aduriz and producing some superb displays, which have included seven league goals and five assists.
