Belgian striker and former Manchester United player Romelu Lukaku was finally named the Europa League player of the 2019/2020 season after the forward helped Italian side Inter Milan to the final with goals in every knockout round.
Lukaku, who revived his career in Italy with 34 goals in all competitions in his first season at the club, scored seven times in the Europa League in six matches. This was after Inter Milan dropped down from the UEFA Champions League into the second-tier competition.
Inter Milan lost the final match 2-3 to Sevilla of Spain in August, but the 27-year-old forward had done enough to sway the vote in his favour with 270 points. He beat Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (128) and Sevilla’s Ever Banega (118) to claim the prize.
