Having racked up a record number of clean sheets for the regular season, Vukovic said he was delighted to be named as co-captain alongside his Sky Blues skipper, Alex Brosque.
“It is an honour to be selected in the team and even more so as captain,” Vukovic said.
“Your fellow players know what you have been through and their respect means you have had a good season; that is why these awards mean so much to players.”
