-- Karnezis Voted Udinese’s Player of the Year --
Orestis Karnezis was named Udinese’s MVP for 2016 by the club’s fans! It is the second consecutive year Karnezis has won this award at the club.
The Greek International was awarded with the “Zebretta d’oro” by Udinese’s fans as he was named the club’s MVP for 2016, a title that he won in 2015 as well. The former Panathinaikos keeper thanked everyone that voted for him. He went on to say “I am very happy that I won this award, it is an honor. The fans have welcomed me here with open arms and I feel at home here. I would like to thank them, my teammates, and the club. I am very happy that the supporters respect me.”
Karnezis is Greece’s #1 keeper and will look to carry over his good showings in Italy to the National Team for their two big qualifiers before the summer away to Belgium and Bosnia.
