Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been voted the French league's player of the year for a third time by his fellow professionals.

Ibrahimovic beat off competition from teammate Angel Di Maria, Marseille midfielder Lassana Diarra and Nice winger Hatem Ben Arfa.

The Sweden international has scored a season-best 35 goals in the French league. He's the first player to score more than 30 in a season in France's top division since Carlos Bianchi scored 37 in 1977-78.
