Zeca wins 3F Superliga Player of the Year 2019

F.C. Copenhagen's Carlos Zeca has been voted the 3F Superliga Player of the Year 2019.

Zeca, who joined FCK in 2017, has played 114 games and scored five goals for the club.

"I'm really happy to earn this award, and I have to admit when I'm a little overcome too, because normally scoring a lot of goals or doing something like that wins you such an award," said Zeca.

"I want to thank all my teammates, coaches and staff, and all those who have helped me a lot at the club. I also want to thank the fans, who always keep us going and in that way, push us to get better. And I'd like to thank my family for always supporting me.

'My first individual award'
"The award is also very special for me because it's the first time I've received an individual award. In the past I've managed to be on the 'team of the year' and things like that, but I've never managed to be the best player in the league.

"It is something very special that I am very proud of, and I will take that into the future. This will lead to working hard at work and training, and helping my teammates and the club."

The decision was made by a jury among all 3F Super League coaches and others, including Åge Hareide, Peter Rudbæk, journalist representative and more.
