Starring role
The 23-year-old was presented with the award in a ceremony at the casino in Spa. The Congolese striker succeeds team-mate Mbark Boussoufa, who won the award last season while at KAA Gent. Tchité, nicknamed 'Memé', took the prize this season ahead of team-mate Ahmed Hassan and KFC Germinal Beerschot Antwerpen striker François Sterchele. Tchité played a big part in Anderlecht's 29th title success this season, scoring 20 times to finish one goal behind Sterchele in the Belgian scorers ranking.

Zitka honoured
Elsewhere, Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia was named as Young Player of the Year while team-mate Daniel Zitka won the prize for the best goalkeeper and was also handed a special 'Twelfth Man' award, voted for by supporters. Hugo Broos was named as Coach of the Year after leading KRC Genk to the runners-up slot, Gent goalkeeper Frédéric Herpoel won the Fair Play award while Jérôme Efong Nzolo was honoured as Belgium's top referee.
