Binh Duong Striker Huynh Kesley has won the V-League’s coveted ‘Golden Boot’ award for his excellent 2009 performance.

Kesley’s 20 goals, including eight that propelled Binh Duong to the Asian Football Confederation Cup semifinals, earned him the title.

Binh Duong finished the season among Asia’s top 10 clubs in the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS)’s rankings released last Tuesday.

Kesley’s eight goals in the tournament also placed him among the top 50 strikers at Asian clubs last year, according to the rankings.

Second and third in the Golden Boot voting were striker Hoang Dinh Tung of Thanh Hoa and midfielder Nguyen Vu Phong of Binh Duong.

The awards ceremony was held at Nguyen Du Sports Club in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 on January 20.
