Monterrey Tigres striker André-Pierre Gignac won the Ballon d’Or for best striker in the Mexican league on Sunday. The 36-year-old Frenchman had another very good season with the Tigers with 18 goals and 4 assists in 32 matches played this year. This is the second time that the tricolor international has obtained this prestigious award, which he had already been able to win in 2016.
“It is a pride and an honor! Thanks to my teammates, my technical staff, my fans and my Tigers club, this wouldn’t have been possible without you! A special thought for the double champion, Julio Furch, who was a key player in the final. You deserved it! Thanks “said the former Marseillais via his account Twitter.
