Paul Pogba has won the Europa League Best Player Award for his efforts in last season’s competition when his Manchester United side claimed the trophy.
The midfielder was pivotal in the Reds’ march through the competition and scored the opening goal of the final against Ajax.
His competition was also provided by Jose Mourinho’s team with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic also shortlisted. Marcus Rashford was also included in the original options.

Pogba arrived from Juventus last summer in a world-record deal having left Old Trafford four years earlier.
He was berated by many for his inconsistent performances but United fans stood firmly behind him and he’s already displaying this season just how brilliant he can be. Having notched two goals and an assist in the opening weeks of the season, the Frenchman has driven his side to back-to-back 4-0 wins.
He and his side will be hoping to continue that form tomorrow evening when Leicester visit Old Trafford. If they can negotiate the challenge of Craig Shakespeare’s side successfully, they could well be 6 points clear of Arsenal on Sunday evening. The Gunners travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in what seems like a daunting task for a defence and a team in disarray. If Arsenal could upset the odds and leave Merseyside with a win, United and their nearest rivals City would be the only teams in last year’s top six not to have lost a game.
