PEREZ HITS DOUBLE TOP IN MADRID
NEWCASTLE forward Ayoze Perez has picked up two awards in recognition of his impressive season at Tenerife last year.
The 21-year-old was at the Liga de Futbol Profesional’s annual awards in Madrid and walked away with the Liga Adelante’s breakthrough player gong, as well as being named the Segunda Division’s best attacking midfielder.
Perez, who opened his Newcastle account in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Tottenham, scored 16 times in 34 appearances for Tenerife last term.
Perez said: “I’m really, really proud to be part of the names in Madrid, because the awards are for players in the Primera and Segunda, so it’s a very important awards ceremony.”
