UEFA awards Kostic and Knauff

Dhe victory in Seville still keeps Eintracht busy. Two days after the success in the Europa League final against Glasgow Rangers and one day after the triumphal march through the city accompanied by tens of thousands, the Uefa two honors announced, which are an additional appreciation for the great achievement.

Filip Kostic was named Europa League Player of the Season. The choice was made by UEFA’s so-called “Panel of Technical Observers”. The 29-year-old impressed throughout the competition with his willingness to run and his goal threat. His cross for Rafael Borré’s equalizer in the final against Glasgow Rangers was his sixth assist overall.

He scored twice in the coup at Camp Nou (3-2); the Serb called his gala in Barcelona in April “the best game of my career”. Ansgar Knauff was named Young Player of the Year. The 20-year-old midfielder didn’t miss a minute in the knockout rounds, striking as a goalscorer against Barça and West Ham.

Axel Hellman, the board spokesman, described reaching the premier class as the beginning of a new era for Eintracht. Reaching the Champions League for the first time is a great opportunity to permanently bring the club closer to the top teams in the industry.
