Senegal striker Dame N'Doye has been voted as the best player in the Denmark top-flight league this year.

The 26-year-old was handed the award following his exploits with champions FC Copenhagen.

Members of the players' union in Denmark voted the striker who scored 25 goals in 31 matches in the 2010/11 season.

"It is always great when others appreciate what you do. My opponents know who the best is," N'Doye said.

"They know who makes a difference on the pitch, so it's huge for me to receive this honour. I have also had a fantastic year.

"It has undoubtedly been my best year as a footballer.

"I owe a big thanks to my team-mates because without them, I could not have achieved it. We have jointly worked hard to get this far."

The Senegalese was influential in the 2010/11 season when they won the title as he scored 25 goals in 31 appearances.

The striker has already scored eight times in 14 matches this season.

His 71 goals in his three seasons at FC Copenhagen makes him the top scorer in the history of the club, eclipsing the 69 goals scored by the legendary striker Todi Jonsson.

N'Doye is a member of Senegal's squad and he is expected to be named in the squad to play at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nation in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea in January.
