Kvaratskhelia’s goal against Atalanta wins Goal of the Year award in Serie A

Napoli have been crowned as the club of the year by the Italian Footballers’ Association (AIC), while former boss Luciano Spalletti and winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia picked up the awards for best coach and best goal of the season respectively, writes Football Italia.

The AIC’s Serie A awards, which have been running since 1968, honoured the Partenopei for their title-winning season in 2022-23. Napoli had not won the league for 33 years before then, led by the late Diego Maradona.

In the dugout for Napoli’s triumphant campaign was Spalletti, who has since moved on to become head coach of the Italy national team.

Among the playing ranks, Napoli had the 2022-23 Capocannoniere in Victor Osimhen, who netted 26 goals from 32 league appearances, as well as the Serie A player of the season in Kvaratskhelia. The Georgian won the AIC’s goal of the season award on Monday night for his mazing run and emphatic finish in the area against Atalanta in March.
