The OH Leuven player missed out to Senegalese Mbaye Leye, who beat his compatriot Cheikhou Kouyate and Golden Shoe holder Dieumerci Mbokani.

The jury of the Ebony Shoe consists among others of coaches of the national departments, the national coaches, and members of the press.

Sawaneh scored 19 goals this season.

On the same day (27 July 2013), Mustapha Jarjue’s Mons will host Cercle Brugge.They will play Lokeren a few days later.
