For the fourth successive year, Outside of the Boot recognises the individuals who stood above & beyond the rest in their respective leagues. With Europe’s top five leagues the focus of our End of Season Awards, we pick out the best players across their respective positions, the best manager, the exceptional Talent Radar young player, and ofcourse the sole man standing above the rest.


Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid continued their wonderful unbeaten run from the previous season while main title rivals and defending champions Barcelona struggled. But a few dropped points and a Clasico later, the title race went down to the wire. Atletico Madrid struggled themselves before recovering, while Sevilla’s early season form eventually faded out.
