End of Season Awards

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. 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 La Liga 2013/14 season.

Despite the La Liga title race being a closely fought affair, the Manager of the Season award was anything but. Diego Simeone dominated this particular award with 79% of the votes, blowing away the rest of the competition. 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.

PLAYER OF THE SEASON | Cristiano Ronaldo

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid 65%
  1. Diego Costa
Atletico Madrid 25%
  1. Lionel Messi
Barcelona 8%

La Liga Player of the Season 2013/14

Diego Costa was well ahead of Lionel Messi as he has helped Atletico Madrid into a wonderful season. All three players led the charts atop the La Liga throughout the season.

Koke is another one from Atletico’s hard-working side that has impressed this season from the midfield area. He has had an incredible breakthrough season, showing an immense balance of attack & defence. Koke led the awards entirely, raking in 62% of the votes at the end of it.

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.

CLASS ‘B’ AWARDS

La Liga 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.

Atletico Madrid 75%
  1. Diego Lopez
Real Madrid 12%
  1. Keylor Navas

DEFENDER OF THE SEASON

  1. Diego Godin
Atletico Madrid 47%
  1. Sergio Ramos
Real Madrid 41%
  1. Mateo Musacchio
Villarreal 7%

Diego Godin, alongwith his teammate Miranda, have had an incredible season with Atletico Madrid proving to be absolute rocks in Simeone’s defense oriented side.  Special mention to Musacchio who got 7% of the votes for a wonderful season with Villarreal, well behind Real’s Sergio Ramos.

MIDFIELDER OF THE SEASON

  1. Ivan Rakitic
Sevilla 40%
  1. Koke
Atletico Madrid 31%
  1. Gareth Bale
Real Madrid 23%

Croatian Ivan Rakitic has become of the most talked about midfielders in Europe after a fantastic season with Sevilla as he beat of Young Player of the Year, Koke, and Real Madrid’s expensive signing, Gareth Bale. As you can see, the awards were closely contested, with Bale actually leading at the start, only to be taken over by Rakitic & Koke.

FORWARD OF THE SEASON

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid 63%
  1. Diego Costa
Atletico Madrid 27%
  1. Lionel Messi
Barcelona 8%

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player from a La Liga club to score 50+ goals in all competitions for four consecutive seasons. There was no doubt he would be voted as the Forward of the Season by our readers. Despite Costa carrying the Atletico team in terms of goals, he was no match for the Portuguese star.

CLASS ‘C’ AWARDS
