The 32-year-old Iliev triumphed with 158 points. Valentin Antov from CSKA-Sofia and Anton Nedyalkov from Ludogorets placed after him.

95 sports journalists from 37 media outlets voted in the 60th edition of the "Footballer of the Year" poll. The Bulgarian Association of Sports Journalists and the Bulgarian Football Union are among the organizers of the poll.
