The Best Goal award of the 22nd matchday was awarded to Rubén Rayos playing for Asteras Tripolis, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented by the vice president of the Super League and president of Asteras Tripolis, Mr Giorgos Borovilos.
After the ceremony, the Asteras player stated:
"I am happy to be receiving this award and I wish to thank the people that voted for me. It gives me strength to go on with my job. This is an award for the whole team, since we all worked to win it.
A few minutes before the end of the first half, there was a cross from the right, I aimed for the far post, was in a position to score and everything went well.
I would like to dedicate this award first of all to my teammates, since it came as a result of our work in the pitch, and to the members of my family in Spain who watch me and support me from afar, as well as to all Greek fans.
Each goal is really important for any player. During the last matchday of last year's championship, I scored a beautiful goal but it was not voted as best goal. I hope there will be more awards and beautiful goals that will greatly help my club. This was the result of team work, the whole team helped and we scored this beautiful and important goal.
The club's display for the past two years is really good. Until then, the club was trying not to get relegated. The fans are really happy with our display; also, it is really important to have such clubs in Greece."
