Emi Buendia wins 2020-21 Falcon Power Player of the Season

29 April 2021

Emi Buendia has won the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy for 2020-21 after being voted the Falcon Power Player of the Season.

Grant Hanley came second in the fan-voted award, with Oliver Skipp propping up the top three.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Buendia said: "It’s something special to receive this award. It’s been a nice season for me and the whole team.

"It’s very good to feel this love from the fans and they gave me this chance to win the trophy.

"I will always be a canary for life. I don’t know what will happen in the future but I will always support this amazing club and I enjoy every minute playing for this shirt."

The Argentine has been the Championship's most productive playmaker this season, getting 14 goals and 16 assists in 37 appearances in the second tier.

After missing the first three games through suspension and injury, Buendia more than made up for lost time as he continued his prolific partnership with Teemu Pukki, scoring a selection of stunning goals along the way.

Buendia becomes the fourth player from outside the British Isles to win the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy since 1967, following Sebastien Bassong (2012-13), Teemu Pukki (2018-19) and Tim Krul (2019-20).
