The FIFA Fair Play Award
Wolfsberger defender Luka Lochoshvili is a hero after his quick thinking helped save the life of Austria Wien star Georg Teigl during a clash in the Austrian Bundesliga in February 2022.
Lochoshvili sprung into action after Teigl fell to the ground following a collision with Nikolas Veratschnig’s knee during the match. The defender together with his team-mate, Christopher Wernitznig, helped prevent Teigl from swallowing his tongue and he deservedly wins the FIFA Fair Play Award.
