Marcus Berg Claims Superleague’s Top Scorer Honor
Marcus Berg’s 22 goals with Panathinaikos this season deservedly earned him the Superleague’s Top Scorer Honor.
Berg’s last goal against Larisa sealed the honor leaving behind him Hamza Younés of Xanthi with 19 goals. Pedro Conde of PAS Giannina finished in third place along with former Olympiacos player Ideye Brown (left in January transfer window) with 13 goals.
Berg is the 8th player in Panathinaikos’ history to finish as the league’s top scorer. The previous seven players include Nikos Lymberopoulos, Djibril Cisse, Krzysztof Warzycha, Fanis Gekas, Dimitris Saravakos, Antonis Antoniadis, and Grigoris Charalambidis.
The Swede’s 22 goals are the most by a single player in a Superleague season since 2009-2010, where Djibril Cisse scored 23 goals for Panathinaikos.
