Mbark Boussoufa won for the second time in his career the Golden Shoe, the award that crowns the best football player in the Belgian league. The Moroccan ended before his team mate Romelu Lukaku and Genk striker Jelle Vossen.

Biglia, Proto and ex-Anderlecht player Van Damme also ended in the top 10. Boussoufa was rewarded for his exceptionally strong second half of last season. He also won the trophy in 2006, while playing for AA Gent.

Final ranking:
1. Mbark Boussoufa (Anderlecht): 344 pts
2. Romelu Lukaku (Anderlecht): 255 pts
3. Jelle Vossen (RC Genk): 187 pts
4. Ronald Vargas (Club Brugge): 57 pts
5. Lucas Biglia (Anderlecht): 52 pts
6. Silvio Proto (Anderlecht): 37 pts

Both Boussoufa and Lukaku were happy with their places in the ranking. The election of the Golden Shoe was broadcasted live and was good for more than one million viewers.
