QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo has spoken of his pride at winning the Supporters' Player of the Year award.
Luongo was named Sportito Supporters' Player of the Year on Saturday morning, in the wake of a fine season which has seen the Australian international make 39 appearances, contributing six goals and three assists.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, Luongo expressed his delight at winning the award, commenting: "It's a great accolade for me personally and something I'm very proud of.
"For the QPR supporters to vote for me as their Player of the Year means so much to me.
"I feel I've played the best football of my career at QPR this season, and this is a brilliant way to round off a positive season for me."
Luongo's season on the international stage is far from finished though.
The 25-year-old is widely-expected to be named in the Australia squad for the World Cup this summer – and he's heading into the summer showcase in buoyant mood.
"This award will give me a great boost," he said.
"I feel I've played well for most of the season, but I've really enjoyed the last few months when the goals have come and we've played some good stuff at times.
"The fans have been brilliant with me since I arrived at Loftus Road and I'm very grateful to them for voting for me."
Luongo also paid tribute to his manager Ian Holloway in the wake of the award news, adding: “The gaffer has been brilliant with me.
“He’s put his trust in me this season, even after international trips when some manager’s in the past have pulled me out.
“I feel I’ve benefitted from that and hopefully now I can take this form into the World Cup.”
