For the third time in his career Mbark Boussoufa may call himself the best player in Belgium. The Anderlecht midfielder beat his team mate Romelu Lukaku to the prize.

 

The Belgian footballers’ union Sporta organized a vote for all players in Belgium. They could pick their best players among all the footballers in the Belgian leagues and their countrymen playing abroad.

 

According to the players, Boussoufa is the best. The 25-year old Moroccan midfielder was once again the main architect of the Anderlecht offense, and helped the team from Brussels to the championship by scoring 14 times and dishing out numerous assists. It was the third time that Boussoufa was crowned best player in Belgium, after receiving the award in 2006 and 2009.

 

Boussoufa’s team mate Romelu Lukaku secured the second spot. The 17-year old prodigy impressed by making fifteen goals in his first season as a professional. With that amount he was second in the league in scoring. Arsenal’s Thomas Vermaelen was voted third by his peers.

 

Anderlecht coach Ariel Jacobs was picked as Best Coach in Belgium. Simon Mignolet (Sint-Truiden) was the Best Goalkeeper. And Franck De Bleeckere was the Best Referee.
