Serie A

Who has been the best player in Serie A this season?

The 2016-17 Serie A campaign is about to come to an end. There are only four more rounds of matches left. Juventus look set to win the Scudetto, while AS Roma and Napoli appear set to take the fight for the runners-up spot down to the wire.

Lazio and Atalanta, this season’s surprise package, are going to battle for the fourth spot. Pescara have already been relegated to Serie B, with Genoa, Empoli, Crotone and Palermo all aiming to avoid the dreaded drop to the Italian second division.

Serie A is blessed with some world-class players and some hugely talented youngsters. Below we look at the three best footballers in the Italian top flight this season and then we choose our Serie A Player of the 2016-17 Season.

ROUND 35 CANCELLED

The Italian football Association has announced that it will be cancelling all the features in the Italian Serie A and the Italian Serie B following the death of the 25-year-old Udinese player Piermario Morosini.

Piermario Morosini is thought to have died of heart attack, which has been an increasing phenomenon in the football world in recent times. A number of players – particularly Spanish players – have passed away while playing football on the pitch.

England midfielder Fabrice Muamba almost lost his life in the match against Tottenham, but excellent medical facilities meant that the doctors were able to save his life at the right moment.
