FC Augsburg defender, Ragnar Klavan, was awarded with the 'Estonian Footballer of the Year' prize. It's his second time and followed Konstantin Vassiljev who won in 2013.
Here is the translation of the message he sent to Estonia to greet the fans.
Hello Dear Football People!
Thanks a lot for this prize and for the title of Estonian Footballer of the Year!
Individual prizes have never been a separate motivation for me, however it is really awesome when your hard job is appreciated. Therefore, a big ‘thank you’ to those who have voted me. Like two years ago, also now I wish to thank all my coaches who have influenced my career. Obviously my greatest ‘thank you’ goes to my family who has always been there for me both during victory and defeat time. And finally, as they say here in Southern Germany: 'Servus Gruss Gott und auf wiederschaun'*
