Dortmund's Haaland wins Golden Boy award
The Norweigan striker received 302 votes to finish atop the list of talented young players after a tremendous debut season in Germany's top flight.
|1||Erling Haaland||Borussia Dortmund||302|
|3||Alphonso Davies||Bayern Munich||226|
|4||Jadon Sancho||Borussia Dortmund||80|
|7||Phil Foden||Manchester City||36|
|8||Dominik Szoboszlai||RB Salzburg||13|
|10||Vinicius Junior||Real Madrid||9|
The award, presented by Italian outlet Tuttosport, is given annually to the top Under-21 player from one of Europe's best leagues.
Haaland burst onto the scene with a tremendous start to the 2019-20 campaign at Red Bull Salzburg, which earned him a move to Dortmund in January. He ended the season as BVB's second-highest scorer despite appearing in just 15 Bundesliga matches.
The 20-year-old leads all Dortmund scorers this season with a half-dozen goals in six league matches.
Haaland is the second Dortmund player to claim the honor after Mario Gotze was named Golden Boy in 2011.
