Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named Italian players' player of the year for his starring role in Inter Milan's run to the Serie A title last season.

The 27 year old was also voted best foreign player by his fellow professionals, edging out last year's winner AC Milan's Kaka.

Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero was named Italian player of the year after finishing top scorer in Serie A and Fiorentina's Cesare Prandelli won coach of the year after guiding his side to a place in the Champions League.
