The country's footballing media has voted the Romanian ace as De Eredivisie's best player over the last 12 months.
Romanian legend Gheorghe Hagi was on hand to award the prize to his fellow countryman.
Runner-up was NAC Breda midfielder Alfred Schreuder, whilst third place went jointly to Aston Villa's former Heerenveen ace Marcus Allback and Utrecht youngster Dirk Kuyt.
The Young Player of the Year award gong was picked up by Rafael van der Vaart, to give Ajax a clean sweep.
Feyenoord's Pierre van Hooijdonk landed the golden boot for his 24 goals last season.
