La Liga 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 La Liga 2013/14 End of Season Awards were the most closely competed one, with most categories lacking a clear winner.

Atletico Madrid have somehow managed to hold their own in the three horse race, led by Simeone, with the title in their own hands.

The Spanish La Liga giants, Real & Barca, have been stunned by Atletico’s consistency. Ancelotti & Martino finished 2nd and 3rd, but were nowhere near Atletico’s Argentinian manager.

Isco Alarcon was always going to find chances hard to come by but has impressed when called upon. Rafinha Alcantara, on loan from Barcelona) has done an exceptional job carrying Celta Vigo into the top half.

Real Madrid 63%
  1. Diego Costa
Atletico Madrid 27%
  1. Lionel Messi
