For a player who once feared never being able to walk again, every minute on the pitch must feel special, but to be still picking up awards like this at the age of 36 just speaks to what a special player Santi Cazorla is.

Cazorla finished the season as a Champion, his side, Al-Sadd, romped to the title 13 points clear of Al-Duhali. He also won the Qatari Stars Cup.
