But the Argentine striker insists he still has a lot to learn.
“It gives me great happiness to receive this award,” he declared, “[Lionel] Messi and other very important players to me have won it and I am very pleased that I have now been chosen.”
“The U-20 World Cup went very well, we won the title and then I started well in the league and won the Olympic gold with Argentina.
“I am very pleased with the way things are going and I hope to continue in the same way. I am happy but I am still a boy and have many things to learn.”
