The Emmen of the Netherlands had the outstanding presence of Miguel Araujo and Sergio Peña during this year, despite the fact that the results were not accompanied. The institution, as in every annual cycle, has decided to award the most important player and the two Peruvian athletes are in competition.
Through its social networks, the Dutch institution announced that it opened a survey, in which all fans will participate. “Now that the year is almost over, we are looking for Speler van ‘t Jaor (player of the year). And we need your help with that!”, Could be read in the statement.
In the same way, Emmen stressed that all footballers who have participated in at least 15 club matches throughout the year were taken into consideration. For now, the vote is underway and the official results of the fan election will be released in the coming days.
How is Miguel Araujo doing in Emmen?
Miguel Araujo has more than met the minimum number of appearances requirement throughout the year, since he played 20 games at the close of the Eredivisie (which ended the fateful relegation) and currently has another 13 appearances in the second division tournament , in which he scored twice. The defender has even been captain on some occasions.
The memory of Sergio Peña
For his part, Sergio Peña’s 2020-21 season was impressive and helped Emmen fight to the end to maintain the category. In the first half of this year, the midfielder made 21 appearances in the first division tournament in the Netherlands, scoring six goals and providing three assists in that span of time.
The results were not enough for salvation, so the club had to play a playoff and the skilled player took a bitter memory: he missed the fifth penalty against Breda and the relegation was consummated. However, the fans remember him with gratitude and many regretted his departure to Malmö in Sweden. Despite what happened, Peña is one of the favorites to win the award for best of the year in his former team.
