UEFA’s Technical Observer Panel has named Marseille’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the 2023/24 UEFA Europa League Player of the Season ahead of Ademola Lookman.

The Gabonese ended the campaign as top scorer and also led the way in terms of goals and assists combined. He netted 10 goals in 11 starts, including a hat-trick against Ajax as the French giants reached the semi-final of the competition.
