Sweden and Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic received the top accolade at the Italian Player of the Year awards on Monday evening.

The Swede was the star performer as Inter romped to a third consecutive title and as well as picking up the top award at the Italian football Oscars, as they are known, he was also named best foreign player.

Veteran Italy and Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero, who topped the scoring charts last season, picked up the best Italian award while Fiorentina boss Cesare Prandelli was named best coach after steering his side into the Champions League at the expense of AC Milan.

Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus was named best goalkeeper, his team-mate Giorgio Chiellini best defender, Napoli's Marek Hamsik best young player and Roberto Rosetti best referee.
