The title of SSL Player of the Year 2017/2018 goes to Storvreta’s Tobias Gustafsson. The jury, including Sweden’s national team coach Mikael Hill, was especially impressed how he took on a leading role in his first season for Storvreta as well his continuous drive to improve himself and his game.
Tobias Gustafsson came to Storvreta this season and immediately had to take a leading role in the team, as well as playing center instead of his regular defender position. This was something he did with vigour and when he returned to his defender position later in the season he delivered in world-class fashion, for his club as well as the Swedish national team. This was due to his great drive, which makes him always work hard to develop himself and his game. In that he is a big role model. And if you look at the competition of this award it’s even a bigger achievement.”
