Osmar Barba Ibanez has been recognised once again as one of the best players in the K-League, earning a nomination for the 2016 K-League MVP Award.
The nomination is another in a long line of recognitions for the Spaniard who has established himself as one of the best central defenders and holding midfielders in Asia since his move from Buriram United to FC Seoul in 2014.
Osmar was named club captain at the beginning of the 2016 season and has lead his FC Seoul team with aplomb, currently sitting in second position on the table.
Osmar is joined by Gwangju FC striker Jung Jo-gook and Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors attacker Leonardo Rodriguez Pereira for the competition’s top honour.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony scheduled for Nov. 8 in Seoul.
