Wellington Phoenix FC striker Roy Krishna has won the inaugural ABC A-League Player of the Year, as judged by experts across the season.
With the final round of the season still to play, Krishna cannot be overtaken for the award with 25 votes, after Isaías missed out on votes in Adelaide United’s win to finish the season on 23 votes.
“It’s special for me, but the business isn’t over yet,” Krishna said.
“All these medals will only be cherished if we meet our targets of our goal, which is to win the competition.”

Krishna’s win comes after a consistent performance throughout the A-League season, scoring hat-tricks and being named in the FIFA team of the week twice.
The 31-year old also leads the Golden Boot scoring charts with 18 goals in 25 games – two ahead of Sydney FC’s English import Adam Le Fondre.
The Fiji Football Captain has been a regular selection in the A-League team of the week this season and is sure to go down in Wellington Phoenix history.
