Chennaiyin FC striker Nerijus Valskis bagged the Golden Boot award for the Indian Super League 2019-20 season for finishing with 15 goals on Saturday.

The Lithuanian, who scored Chennaiyin's only goal in the 3-1 loss in the final to ATK, is the joint top-scorer alongside Kerala Blasters' forward Bartholomew Ogbeche and ATK skipper Roy Krishna.

Ogbeche, who has a superior scoring rate of 0.94 among the three, has a conversion rate of 25 per cent while Krishna and Valskis have 29 per cent and 28 per cent respectively. Valskis has also contributed with six assists as Chennaiyin FC recovered from an early slump to qualify for the playoffs by finishing fourth in the league stage.

FC Goa's playmaker Hugo Boumous was adjudged "Hero of the League" for his performances which saw the Gaurs finish top of the league stage. The Frenchman scored 11 goals and set up 10 in 15 matches, but was unable to guide Goa to a second consecutive final appearance as it lost Chennaiyin in the semis.
