Icardi: "Player of the year? First time I win it and so I am happy. Thank you all"
A hattrick for Mauro Icardi. The Nerazzurri received three awards for the 2017-2018 season at the Gran Gala del Calcio event: goal of the season (the back-heel goal against Sampdoria), team of the season and best of all is player of the year. Here are his words to Sky Sport after the ceremony:
“This is the first time that I win it. I would like to thank those who voted for me, my colleagues and coaches. It is important to be in the Top 11 of Italian football. I am a forward and I have to score. When the ball comes, I have to be ready.”
