TEHRAN, July 23 (Xinhua) — Iranian international striker Sardar Azmoun has won the 2019-20 Russian Premier League Golden Boot award.
Azmoun and his Zenit St Petersburg teammate Artem Dzyuba both played 28 games and scored 17 goals, but the Iranian was ranked ahead of the Russian by virtue of having scored fewer goals from the penalty spot.
Azmoun scored just one penalty, whereas Dzyuba scored seven.
“I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me in the current season. I worked very hard to win the award,” Azmoun posted on his Instagram account. Enditem
