Ronaldo, Costa And Vela Nominated For‘best Striker Award, Messi Left Out by macjireh: 9:59am On Oct 18, 2014
Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Carlos
Vela have been nominated as the three
finalists for LFP’s ‘Best Striker of 2013/14’
award.
The La Liga trio have impressed both fans
and pundits alike as they were instrumental
figures for their sides, scoring important
goals last season. However, former winner
Lionel Messi has been surprisingly left out of
the nominations this year.
Ronaldo has scored over 30 goals for
the fourth consecutive season
Ronaldo is the front runner and the red hot
favourite to claim this award. The Real
Madrid attacker tallied a total of 31 goals
this season which saw him already bring
home the European Golden Boot. Averaging
1.03 goals per game, this was his fourth
consecutive season where he scored over 30
goals. The Ballon D’Or holder also
registered 216 shots on goal.
Chelsea striker Diego Costa is also up for the
accolade after enjoying a great campaign
with his former club Atletico Madrid. The 26-
year-old netted 27 goals in the Spanish
league and was significantly responsible for
Atletico’s historic La Liga win after 18 years.
Former winner Lionel Messi ignored
Carlos Vela of Real Sociedad rounds up the
list of nominees as he scored 16 goals in 37
games for the Basque side. Even though his
individual stats are feeble when compared to
his fellow contenders, the Mexican was
instrumental in Sociedad’s qualification in
the Champions League and this was his best
individual season so far.
The exclusion of Lionel Messi from this award
has astonished many after the Barcelona
attacker was dropped from the final three
list. The four-time Ballon D’Or winner’s later
half of the season was disrupted by lingering
hamstring injuries and even after being the
second top-scorer in La Liga, he was left out
for the award.
The LFP awards ceremony will be held on 27
October, 2014 and will be broadcasted on La
Sexta and via the LFP’s official website.
