Goalkeeper for the Ghanaian national team, the Black Stars, Lawrence Ati-Zigi, has been honored with the title of Best Goalkeeper of the Season in the 2022/23 Swiss Super League.
The 26-year-old, who serves as St. Gallen’s number one goalkeeper, received this recognition through a vote conducted by the Swiss Association of Football Players, which represents the Switzerland branch of FIFPro.
Ati-Zigi has been an integral part of St. Gallen’s success this season, displaying exceptional skills in 30 league matches and maintaining three clean sheets along the way.
His consistent performances and contributions have earned him this prestigious accolade in the Swiss Super League.
He has faced 146 shots in those 30 games he has played, saving 103 of them (the most in the league), giving him a 70 percent save rate as he conceded 44 goals, letting in 1.5 goals per game.
The former Red Bull Salzburg goalkeeper makes 3.5 saves per 90 minutes.
Lawrence Ati-Zigi was also named the Best Player in the Swiss Super League in the first half of the season. He has been Ghana’s number one goalkeeper since Joseph Wollacott picked up an injury on the World Cup eve.
