Edin Džeko has been named Bosnia and Herzegovina's player of the year for the third successive season after a positive 2011/12 campaign for club and country.
Džeko scored 14 goals in 30 appearances to help Manchester City FC pick up the English Premier League title, while on the international stage he helped his country through to the UEFA EURO 2012 play-offs – where they lost out to Portugal.
"I must say I am particularly pleased to win the award for the third year in a row," commented the 26-year-old. "I am pleased with my performance this season in which I won the English title with my club, but I am sorry our national team did not manage to go to EURO 2012."
Džeko was declared victorious by a jury of sports journalists, who selected the former VfL Wolfsburg forward ahead of Miralem Pjanić (AS Roma), Senad Lulić (SS Lazio), Vedad Ibišević (VfB Stuttgart) and Sejad Salihović (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim).
Amar Osim, who won the double with FK Željezničar, was named coach of the year.
