Kevin de Bruyne wins PFA Player of the Year award

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has won the Professional Footballers’ Association men’s Players’ Player of the Year award. Phil Foden won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has won the Professional Footballers’ Association men’s Players’ Player of the Year award for the second consecutive season.

City team-mate Phil Foden won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

“You want to win all the trophies as a team and this is probably the most important one as an individual,” said De Bruyne.

“To be voted by your competitors, by players who you compete with every game – to choose you, that says a lot.

“When you have these things, you can show your kids and say: ‘Look, this is what daddy did when he was younger.'”

The Belgium international scored six Premier League goals and registered 12 assists in 2,001 minutes of top-flight football.

He played a key role in City’s double success before fracturing his nose and left eye socket during the Champions League final defeat by Chelsea on 29 May.

He has since had minor surgery on his facial injury and will join the Belgium Euro 2020 squad on Monday.
