2014.10.20 | Swedish FA


On November 11 the Swedish Football Awards are taking place in Stockholm, Sweden. Zlatan has once again (obviously) been nominated as one of three players for the "Forward of the year"-award. This is the 9th time Zlatan has been nominated, he has one the other 8 times (2005, 2007-2013).


He has the same record for the Swedish Golden Ball, given to the best male player that year, and everything points to him getting it for the ninth time this year.


The only competitor for the price is probably Malmo FF's Markus Rosenberg, with an impressive season behind him, but considering Zlatan won two titles with PSG this spring, the top scorer title in Ligue 1 as well as beating the Swedish national team goal record wth 50 goals, it would be a huge surprise if Swedish FA and Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet didn't once again give it to Ibra. Rosenberg is also nominated for the "Forward of the year"-award so one of them will probably win both awards.


We'll just have to wait until November 11 and see.
