End of Season Awards

Serie A 2013/14 End of Season Awards

The readers of Outside of the Boot have cast their votes across Europe’s top 4 leagues across 10 different award categories with 4 nominees under each to pick the players who they believe deserved recognition the most. The Serie A 2013/14 End of Season Awards were the most closely competed one, with most categories lacking a clear winner. Note that no club has more than one representative in a particular product category.

CLASS ‘A’ AWARDS

These are the highest class of awards in Outside of the Boot’s End of Season Awards, recognising the top individuals in three distinct categories. These are the individuals who can be classified as the best in their respective category this particular Serie A 2013/14 season.

MANAGER OF THE SEASON | Rudi Garcia

  1. Rudi Garcia
Roma 68%
  1. Antonio Conte
Juventus 21%
  1. Andrea Mandorlini
Hellas Verona 10%
Serie A Manager of the Year 2013-14

Serie A Manager of the Year 2013-14

AS Roma’s Rudi Garcia was the clear winner in this category getting a huge 68% of the votes as he has led the capital club to an impressive 2nd place finish; up from 6th last season and finally back into the Champions League. The improvement in defence is the primary reason with Roma conceding less than half the goals they did last season.

Antonio Conte, despite winning a third consecutive Scudetto, was well beaten by Rudi Garcia while Andrea Mandorlini’s impressive season with Hellas upon promotion has seen him come in at third place. Torino’s Ventura was the 4th nominee getting just 2% of the votes.

PLAYER OF THE SEASON | Ciro Immobile

  1. Ciro Immobile
Torino 36%
  1. Miralem Pjanic
Roma 31%
  1. Carlos Tevez
Juventus 29%
Serie A Player of the Year 2013-14

Serie A Player of the Year 2013-14

Ciro Immobile has had an outstanding debut season in Torino’s remarkable campaign, where they’re looking to secure European football, while last season they were facing relegation from the top division. He is the league’s top scorer and has impressed onlookers with the best Serie A season of his career.

It wasn’t easy though, Miralem Pjanic who finished 5% worse off than Immobile led the awards for the better part of the one week duration when voting was open. Tevez too made a late a call for the top award in his debut season, but landed up missing out eventually.

#TALENTRADAR YOUNG PLAYER OF THE SEASON | Paul Pogba

Player should have been 21 and below at the start of the season.

  1. Paul Pogba
Juventus 68%
  1. Jorginho
Napoli / Hellas Verona 13%
  1. Adem Ljajic
Roma 11%
Serie A Young Player 2013-14

Serie A Young Player of the Year 2013-14

Arguably the best young midfielder in the world, Paul Pogba dominated our Young Players of the Year category at the end of season awards with a huge 68% of the votes. The man who featured in our list of 100 Young Players to Watch in 2014, had a slump in form at the turn of the year but has been excellent otherwise.

Jorginho was making waves at Hellas Verona which prompted a move to Napoli. He came in second in the category, which could be down more to his Hellas Verona days. Roma’s summer signing, Adem Ljajic was not far behind with Shkodran Mustafi getting just 8% of the votes.

CLASS ‘B’ AWARDS

Serie A Position Awards

The second level of Outside of the Boot’s End of Season Awards are the positional awards given to players across four distinct areas. Certainly, goes without saying, no players has been nominated for more than one positional category.

GOALKEEPER OF THE SEASON

  1. Gianluigi Buffon
Juventus 35%
  1. Morgan De Sanctis
Roma 27%
  1. Samir Handanovic
Inter Milan 26%

One of the closest award battles in our End of Season Awards, Morgan De Sanctis led the way for a large point until Buffon had a sudden bump in his votes. Handanovic’s excellent displays recently not enough to take him all the way.

DEFENDER OF THE SEASON

  1. Mehdi Benatia
Roma 70%
  1. Giorgio Chiellini
Juventus 21%
  1. Shkodran Mustafi & Alessandro Lucasrelli
Sampdoria & Parma 5%

The man signed from Udinese has had an incredible season with his new club, AS Roma. Mehdi Benatia has been absolutely solid at the back, while also willing to get forward, often as a ball-playing defender.

MIDFIELDER OF THE SEASON

  1. Miralem Pjanic
Roma 53%
  1. Paul Pogba
Juventus 31%
  1. Antonio Candreva
Lazio 10%

Miralem Pjanic was leading our Class ‘A’ Awards for quite some time as well. His excellent creativity, accurate passing and classy free-kicks have seen Pjanic propelled to the top of the Serie A players lists.

FORWARD OF THE SEASON

  1. Ciro Immobile
Torino 54%
  1. Carlos Tevez
Juventus 28%
  1. Gonzalo Higuain
Napoli 11%

After having won our Class ‘A’ Player of the Year Award, Immobile was certainly going to take the Forward of the Year Award as well. He himself is a new signing, as were 2nd and 3rd placed strikers, Tevez & Higuain resp., as well.

CLASS ‘C’ AWARDS

The final class of Outside of the Boot’s End of Season Awards putting players head to head based on their age, youth football and also on the basis of managerial judgement.

Transfer of the Season: Mehdi Benatia (Roma) – 39%

Experienced Player of the Season: Carlos Tevez (Juventus) – 44%

Homegrown Player of the Season: Danielle De Rossi (Roma) – 49%

Thus Roma were the most successful side in our End of Season Awards with 5 wins and 4 other nominations. Juventus were the only side to have been nominated by us in all 10 awards, winning only 3. Carlos Tevez was the only player to have been nominated for three different awards, winning two of those. Tevez alongwith Immobile were the only two players to win more than one award. Interestingly. no one other than Roma, Juventus & Torino players won any award.
