Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been named Serie A Player of the Year for 2022/23 ahead of Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen
Osimhen gets revenge on Kvaratskhelia
Kvicha Kvaratskhelia was named Serie A MVP for the 2022/23 season in controversial circumstances as many believed the award rightfully belonged to Osimhen.
The Nigerian had to settle for the Striker of the Year gong at the Serie A awards but will be delighted that his exploits from last season are now being officially recognised.
Osimhen will probably cherish this award more as it is a form of validation from his peers because the award is voted for and presented by the Italian Footballers Association, AIC.
Kvaratskhelia did not leave GGDC empty-handed though as he also won the 2022/23 Goal of the Season Award for his mazy run and finish against Atalanta.
