Kovacic will be presented with the trophy at Cobham having topped the voting after an outstanding 2019/20.
He was a key member of Chelsea midfield in his first season as a fully-fledged Blue, having made his loan move from Madrid a permanent switch to Stamford Bridge last summer.
Only two players made more than Kovacic’s 47 appearances over the course of the season.
He also scored his first two goals for the club, in consecutive weeks in November against Valencia and Everton.
He began the season in fine form, starting seven of Chelsea’s first eight matches, and even when left out of the line-up as part of Frank Lampard’s rotation, he still managed to make his mark, with his impact from the bench key in helping his side break down a stubborn Newcastle side at Stamford Bridge in October.
He started all of Chelsea’s last six games in all competitions, and his performances helped them secure a top-four finish in the Premier League and reach the FA Cup final.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
