Igor Denisov is Zenit fans` player of the year!

Zenit`s halfback, who scored the final goal of the season in Athens a week ago, was voted by Zenit fans as being the team`s player of the year in 2010.

This season, in which Zenit proved that it`s the strongest team in Russia after completing a golden double for the first time in its history, will be remembered for the many personal records set by our players… and by the team`s fans! After the launch of the new version of the team`s official website the team`s fans chose the best players in the team`s guest book on the site.

The best players by month (on average) were:

April
1. Malafeev
2. Denisov
3. Danny

May
1. Denisov
2. Danny
3. Lombaerts

July
1. Danny
2. Denisov
3. Shirokov

3. Zhevnov

September

3. Lombaerts

October

3. Anyukov

November

3. Huszti

December

As per tradition we determine the best player not on the average total votes for the season, but rather on the results of monthly voting. The player receives 3 points for coming in first place for a month, 2 points for second place, and 1 point for third place. These simple calculations give the following results:

Ist place: Igor Denisov, 10 points (2 first places, 2 second places);
2nd place: Miguel Danny, 8 points (1 first place, 2 second places, 1 third place);
3rd place: Vyacheslav Malafeev, 6 points (2 first places).

Congratulations to the winners!
