Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof thanked his team-mates and family after being named Swedish Player of the Year for 2018 in Stockholm.
The 24-year-old, who joined United from Benfica for £30 million in 2017, received the 'Guldbollen' trophy at a ceremony in Sweden's capital after establishing himself at Old Trafford and shining at the World Cup finals in Russia.
Lindelof has started 10 of the Reds' 12 Premier League games this season and, despite some nervous moments, moved ahead of the likes of Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo in the central defensive pecking order.
His Old Trafford colleagues were among those who were recognised in his acceptance speech.
“It means very much for me to receive this prize,” he said at the event, also attended by ex-United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who won the award for 10 consecutive years up to 2016.
