Barcelona loanee Alen Halilovic has had a phenomenal start with his new team, Sporting Gijón, and his great performances have gotten a very cool recognition.

The Croatian youngster was presented on Thursday with the Jugador 5 Estrellas award, given to the best Gijón performer for the month of September:

Halilovic also celebrated winning the award on Instagram -- yes, he looks like a 14-year-old that shouldn't be driving:

The coolest part about it is this award is voted by the fans through social media, and the 19-year-old was the preferred choice for the Gijón supporters. That shows that this kid has really caught the attention of the fans early on, and he might leave Sporting when his loan contract ends as a fan favorite.

Awesome job, Alen. Keep on improving and come kick butts with us next season.
