Jude Bellingham WINS LaLiga Best Player Of The Season Award For 2023/24 Season, While Lamine Yamal WINS Young Player.

Jude Bellingham has been crowned La Liga’s Player of the Year at the awards gala held in Sardinia on Tuesday, capping a remarkable debut season for Real Madrid.

The Real Madrid player has been outstanding in his first season with Los Blancos, scoring 19 goals, 6 assists in his 28 appearances which spearheaded the club to its 36th league title.

His stellar performances in the first half of the season were instrumental in establishing a commanding lead for Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Bellingham joined the Spanish giants last summer as part of a £103m deal with Borussia Dortmund and it was a signing that got everyone in Madrid excited given the calibre of clubs chasing the midfielder’s signature at the time.

The Englishman started life at the Bernabeu on fire, scoring five goals across Real Madrid's opening four matches of their league campaign.

The winner of this award is determined by the votes of fans, club captains and a panel of experts. 

Bellingham beat the likes of Kubo (Real Sociedad), Griezmann (Atlético Madrid), Dovbyk (Girona), Kirian (UD Las Palmas), Lewandowski (Barcelona), Vinicius Jr. (Real Madrid), Isco (Real Betis), Aleix García (Girona) and Sorloth (Villarreal) in the final vote.

It’s actually the second season in a row that the 20-year-old has collected the POTS award in his respective league, having done so in the Bundesliga in 2022-23.

Bellingham, who was unable to attend the ceremony, sent the following message: “Thank you for this award, it's an honour to receive it. I'm sorry I couldn't attend because I have been preparing for the Champions League final.

 I would like to dedicate it to my teammates, the coaching staff and, most importantly, to the fans of the best club in the world. It's a pleasure every time I play for this team. ¡Hala Madrid!”

The midfielder’s season could get even better this weekend at Wembley stadium, as his former club Borussia Dortmund stands between him and his first Champions League medal. 

Meanwhile, The Young Player of the Year awarded to the best Under-23 player was won by Lamine Yamal, who had a remarkable breakthrough season for Barcelona at the age of 16.

The La Masia graduate who shone brightly this season, played a key role in Xavi's side and broken many records as youngest player.

The Manager of the Year was realistically between two candidates: Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti, and Michel Sanchez of Girona. Los Blancos failed to make two awards of the night, as it was Michel that won the award, having guided Girona to third place and their first ever Champions League qualification.

The 2023/24 LaLiga's dream Team of the Season also includes Bellingham's teammates Carvajal, Rüdiger, Valverde and Vinicius Jr. The rest of the players are: Unai Simón, Ronald Araujo, Miguel Gutiérrez, Aleix García, Gundogan, Isco Alarcon, Savio, Griezmann, Lewandowski and Artem Dovbyk.
