‘I’m buzzing,’ Antonio said after receiving his award. ‘Obviously as a professional footballer you go out there and try your hardest and your best, so to get some recognition for it is amazing.
‘Since I started my professional career this is definitely the best I’ve played and hopefully I can carry it on to next season.’
