Last week Croatia’s Danijel Subašić was named the best goalkeeper in the French league this season, and now Croatia also has the best goalkeeper in Belgium.
On Monday night Lovre Kalinić was named Best Goal Keeper in the Belgium league for the 2016/17 season.
What makes the award even more impressive is Kalinić only played half a season in the league after arriving in January to Gent from Hajduk Split.
Kalinić, who will be in goal for Croatia against Mexico this weekend in Los Angeles, was last week named by Gent fans as their player of the year. According to UEFA’s coefficient, the Belgium first division is ranked the 9th best league in Europe.
Kalinić played in 19 matches this season for Gent, conceding 17 goals and winning the man of the match award in four matches.
