Stephan Schrock named 2020 PFL MVP

United City team captain and Azkals star Stephan Schrock bagged the 2020 Philippines Football League (PFL) Golden Ball award after leading his club to a fourth franchise championship and a historic AFC Champions League berth.

The 2019 Philippines Sportswriters Association Mr Football awardee was vital in controlling the midfield that paved the way for his squad to rout the other PFL squads.

It's no surprise that Spanish striker Bienvenido Marañon, who is also the AFC Cup's top goalscorer, took home the 2020 Golden Boot Award after netting 7 goals in 5 games.

Marañon tallied two hat-tricks in the games against Mendiola FC and Stallion Laguna FC, where the winning result clinched the title for the former Ceres-Negros FC squad.

Young Azkal Anthony Pinthus, who was on loan to United City FC, copped his first Golden Glove award in the 2020 season.

The keeper, who saw action in the country's hosting of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, kept 3 clean sheet against his original squad Azkals Development Team, Mendiola, and Maharlika FC.

Kaya FC hacked out a statement win over United City to end both teams' campaigns, and solidified a return to the 2021 AFC Cup as the season's runner-up. – Rappler.com
