Cruzeiro's Everton Ribeiro has been named Brazil's player of the year, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said today.

The attacking midfielder, who is being watched by Manchester United according to media reports, was Cruzeiro's standout player as they ran away with Brazil's Serie A title.

Cruzeiro dominated the end-of-season awards with their coach Marcelo Oliveira claiming the manager of the year prize and four players making the championship's team of the season.

Goalkeeper Fabio, central defender Dede, and holding midfielder Nilton, all joined Ribeiro in the side.

Second-placed Atletico Paranaense, who lost the Brazilian Cup final to Flamengo on Wednesday, had three players in the team and striker Marcelo was named young player of the year.

The coaches and captains of Brazil's 20 first division sides voted, along with top journalists and members of the Brazil international squad who beat Honduras and Chile earlier this month.

Team of the season:

Fabio (Cruzeiro); Marcos Rocha (Altetico Mineiro), Dede (Cruzeiro), Manoel (Atletico Paranaense), Alex Telles (Gremio); Nilton (Cruzeiro), Elias (Flamengo), Everton Ribeiro (Cruzeiro), Paulo Baier (Atletico Paranaense); Walter (Goias), Ederson (Atletico Paranaense)
