Gerard Moreno elected best player of the last Europa League

Spanish international forward Gerard Moreno was named best player in the Europa League last season, which he won with Villarreal.

The announcement was made by UEFA before the draw for the group stage of the new Europa League in Istanbul.

The striker competed for this individual award with two Manchester United players, the Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and the Portuguese Bruno Fernandes.

Gerard Moreno succeeds in this recognition the Belgian Romelu Lukaku, recent signing of Chelsea.

Moreno, 29, led Villarreal to their first European trophy last May.

He scored 7 goals, including one in the final against the Red Devils (1-1) and another in the penalty shootout (11-10) that gave the ‘Yellow Submarine’ the final victory.
