Antoine Griezmann named Best Player in LaLiga Santander 2015/16

The Frenchman's match-winning prowess and influential role for Atletico Madrid earned him this most prestigious of #PremiosLaLiga honours.

Antoine Griezmann (21 March 1991, Macon, France) has picked up the Best Player in LaLiga Santander 2015/16 award at the #PremiosLaLiga Gala. This is the first time the forward has been named the division's player of the season and comes in recognition of his sensational performances for Atletico Madrid last term.

The Frenchman was a regular difference-maker and match-winner during what was another dream season for himself and Los Rojiblancos, and his excellent stats are a testament to his influence. With 22 goals and five assists, he spearheaded the charge with distinction for an Atletico Madrid side whose strong team spirit and tight-knit unit also provide a perfect platform for individuals to shine. Griezmann certainly sparkled in 2015/16, consistently showcasing his all-round talent, eye for goal and knack of coming up with something special to settle games in crunch moments, a combination which has seen him crowned as the campaign's outstanding performer.

The winner of the Best Player award was decided by Media Coach, a video-analysis tool created by LaLiga and Mediapro that tracks the performances of every single player from all 20 LaLiga Santander clubs. This next-gen technology aims to improve each team's performance by providing them with in-depth statistics, created through analysing matches and individual players. Media Coach also provides real-time analysis of matches and allows for data mining of all LaLiga games.
