UEFA on Friday named Eintracht Frankfurt's left winger Filip Kostic as Europa League's player of the 2021-2022 season.

With three goals and six assists, Kostic made a vital contribution to Eintracht Frankfurt's 2022 Europa League trophy.

"The 29-year-old was the German side's creator-in-chief throughout their victorious campaign. His cross for Rafael Borré's equaliser in the final against Rangers was his sixth of the campaign, two more than any other player in the competition," UEFA said on Friday.

"The left-sided Serbian also nullified top scorer James Tavernier's attacking threat in Seville and converted his penalty in the shoot-out with typical composure."

The German team lifted the 2022 UEFA Europa League trophy on Wednesday after beating the Scottish side Rangers on penalties.

Kostic has been playing for Eintracht Frankfurt since 2018.
